' This banana bread is super simple to make and made with spelt flour. It is soft and gooey and delicious served with peanut butter spread on top. This is a great family recipe to make for the weekend and only requires one mixing bowl to wash up! Banana bread is a delicoius afternoon tea time treat and perfect with a cup of coffee or tea'.
