I saw many bloggers talking about Nigella Lawson’s Banana Bread, and they raved about it so much that I couldn’t help but make it. This banana bread is moist and needs no glaze or topping to make it look good.

There are two versions of Nigella Lawson’s Banana Bread and I chose the one without the raisins. I like how this dessert comes together, it is prepared in no time, although you have to wait almost an hour for this cake to be baked.

The aroma of Nigella Lawson’s Banana Bread filled the house and it was amazing, I couldn’t wait to take it out of the oven and taste it.

I usually wait until the cake is completely cool since by then the flavors came together and you’ll get the real taste of the cake, but I hurried to take a piece from this beauty and although was piping hot, it was delicious.

I’ve made some changes to Nigella Lawson’s Banana Bread recipe, like adding chopped almonds and reducing the amount of butter, yet this cake stayed moist for a long time.

I’ll be baking this cake again, it was a hit!
