Calling all coffee lovers!


Coffee is arguably the world’s most popular beverage after water. Its nutty flavour keeps us going throughout the hustle and bustle. Sometimes the aroma alone can stimulate our senses and make us feel alive again after that pesky post-lunch “itis”. A cup of coffee is the five minutes of heaven that we need to jolt us out of our slumber and coax us away from the warmth of our beds. Many of us simply cannot survive with this drink that has become gold in a mug.

Without further ado, here is the recipe for Coffee Cake with Banana.

Here's what you'll need...

2 ripe bananas
