Banana Bread Slice
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.

The header was so big to fit in this so I removed. Since it was late night, I was thinking something else but I wrote something. But,one part of the picture I'm using it in profile picture.

Try this recipe, you will get it .... I got this right in the first time itself.
