Carrot cake has a tendency to veer into maximalist territory. If you let it, it can become a multi-layer affair with not just shredded carrots, but pineapple and raisins and even shredded coconut.
This banana bread is, right now, my favorite take on the classic. It’s got chocolate. It’s got pecans. It’s scented with cinnamon.
Another banana bread? Yeah, I know. I just wrote about the double chocolate one last week. But this one is different.
It’s more of a breakfast bread.
