I made a batch of my mother in law's famous banana "cake" the other day. Usually, it is baked in a bread loaf pan and then covered with frosting, hence the banana bread loaf gets turned into a bit of a cake. This time, I decided to bake the bread in a tart pan. It baked much more quickly and there was enough batter left over for a mini loaf.
I frosted the top and added some mini chocolate chips. It was delicious and gobbled up over the 4th of July weekend. Just an idea, in case you want to spruce up your banana bread recipe.
