Your Place For All Things Yummy

This recipe is so, so delicious and what we love most about it is that it is a brilliant way to use up slightly overripe bananas. Sure we love banana bread as much as the next person but this somewhat old fashioned recipe gives you another option to use up that fruit before it goes to waste. It also uses other ingredients that you most likely have in the kitchen on any given day. Enjoy!
