The Best Tea Bread from The Verandas: Banana Bread-Pudding Loaf
This tea bread – dessert loaf, breakfast bread – is the most delightful banana bread we’ve ever had. So moist it’s truly a combination of banana bread and bread pudding.
Chuck says he has been asked if this banana bread pudding loaf re-heats well for breakfast. His reply? “I don’t know as it hasn’t lasted that long.”
