The great thing about quick breads also is the most obvious. They’re quick.
Stir together some ingredients, pop it in a pan, throw it in the oven. Your house will be filled with the fantastic smells of baking and you probably didn’t do more than 15 minutes of work.
This quick bread is no exception. It is equally at home on a breakfast or brunch table, served with coffee or tea mid-afternoon with a dusting of powdered sugar, or after dinner with a dollop of whipped cream. We’ve combined the spicy fall flavors of gingerbread with the sweet, moist flavors of banana bread.
For nutrition, we added some bran. For fun, we flecked it with chopped bittersweet chocolate. Be sure to use very ripe bananas for the best flavor.
