Recipe Tips

  • If you find the that the top is starting to burn, but the bread is not cooked in the middle yet, then simply cover it with some foil. This method will help it continue to cook but also reducing the amount the outside will burn.
  • Assuming you want to add some more flavor to this recipe, then I recommend adding some allspice and cinnamon. A teaspoon of each should be the perfect amount.
  • If you don’t like your banana bread too sweet, then I recommend removing the sugar altogether. The sugars in the raspberry jam and the mashed banana should be sufficient enough to keep it great tasting.
