Fudgy Banana Bread
Don’t let those really over ripe bananas go to waste.
Team them up with a few bars of Cadbury Fudge & you will have a bread made in heaven…..
I’m really trying to reduce food waste in my household. It is so sad to see perfectly good food go to waste. So I’m making sure I’ve got recipes up my sleeve to use up any ingredients that are ‘on their way out’.
When I see a couple of brown bananas sitting on the shelf I get a bit excited as it means it’s time to whip up some Fudgy Banana Bread.Or alternatively you could peel and chop up the bananas, put into a freezer bag and freeze them. Use the frozen bananas in a Summer Red Berry Smoothie or to make Banoffee Ice Cream.Back to the Fudgy Banana Bread….A finger of fudge is never enough! This is so true, so crack on and chop up 4 bars ready to use later.
