This was such a great way to use up some banana bread that was hanging on, once my family moved on. They love it fresh out of the oven and even the second day- beyond that, it needs a reboot and rebirth.
Enter Griddled Banana Bread.
I use a one bowl banana bread recipe. I see no need to do more dishes as I do not have a dishwasher.
So to make the Griddled Banana Bread, I simply slather both sides with homemade butter and grill in a cast iron pan till warm, brown , and crusty on both sides.
Then I serve with maple syrup and sliced bananas.
And that’s it. Pretty simple but in all my years of baking banana bread, I have just started serving this the past year. It just hit me one day, and it was an instant hit.
