Griddled Banana Bread

Jump to Recipe

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.

How can you not love anything slathered in real maple syrup ??

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.
