banana bread with zesty orange ricotta & honey

I find that banana bread recipes are too ‘cakey’, so after lots of tweaking i found the right balance for a ‘cafe style’ banana bread that is dense, moist & tasty, and that most importantly stays together when you slice it.

It’s best sliced thick and can be toasted or just fresh (or even better…fresh and warm out of the oven). I love it with this zesty orange ricotta drizzled with honey…a perfect weekend breakfast in the sun.
