Baking is probably one of my least favourite things to do in the kitchen. Not because I dislike baking and the yummy outcome of the entire process, but because nearly all the things I would love to bake involve using raw eggs - which I hate, loath, despise, dislike eggs.......you get the point - I steer clear away! The story of my weird relationship with eggs is a rather humorous one, which I will probably share another time.
So why am I talking about raw eggs you wonder....
Well sometimes I come across some irresistible recipes that contain eggs as an ingredient, for which I don't mind enduring just the briefest glimpse of the raw eggs during the preparation. Now enter this post's offering - Banana Bread.
Banana bread is so easy and straightforward to make, and besides for this recipe (and quantity) I only have 1 egg to deal with......:).
Definitely worth it!
