For some reason or another I can't think of a better day than to bake on a rainy Sunday.  That's exactly how this banana bread came to life. One of my favorite things my Mum made for us when I was younger was banana nut bread. I'll always remember how she would make it on a cold day and serve it hot with butter. Just thinking about it makes me want it! (Trussardi ate most all of this batch the day it was made!) Now that I'm older I've discovered my own recipe and have modified it to my personal liking. Below is the banana nut bread recipe I call my own but is inspired (derived from)

If you guys decide to try to make it let me know in the comments below! I would love to know how you tweek the recipe to make it your own :)
