Banana Bread with The Boy Who Bakes

As the winner of the first series of The Great British Bake Off, Edd Kimber‘s reputation guarantees the fail-proof flavoursomeness of his recipes. Not only does his banana bread boasts a visual-pleasing look, but it also boasts this moist interior studded with cacao nibs throughout for essential crunch and instead of typical crushed walnuts you found in banana bread.
