          How to decorate banana bread is not so many easy options. My most favorite and easy is just sprinkling with sugar powder and my banana bread is going to become also a fancy banana bread because of the contrast between sugar powder and dark bread. Very important sprinkle sugar powder on cold bread or sugar will be melted. In the photo, I use a different pan to make my banana bread and decorated with sugar powder. Because we serve it from upside down, very important to have a smooth surface without cavities. Just tap slightly on the table the pan so the dough settles down well.

Another way to decorate the banana bread idea is to place slices of banana on the top before baking. Very important, choose a firm banana. I sliced a banana lengthwise. I used 2 slices, one on one side and another on the other side. I used sugar powder but the design is good without sugar on the top too. Much more interesting appearance than without slices.

1. Baking Banana Bread In Silicone Baking Pans


     I put to test my silicone baking pan compare to metal olf fashion baking pan. It takes slightly less time in silicone but sides of bread not crispy like in the metal baking pan. So if you are looking for soft sides of your banana bread, consider using a silicone baking pan.

2. Banana Bread Is Great For Freezing

       Banana bread is very good for freezing. I slice excess of my banana bread what I have left and freeze in a ziplock bag. I take out from the ziplock bag how many slices I needed. The rest of the slices I place back in the freezer for future use. A big difference makes if I add a cup of water in the microwave. The water makes banana bread so moisture and much better than without. I microwave one slice of banana bread for 30 seconds at first if not enough add more time. Serve with ice cream, sweetened condensed milk, or just sprinkle with powdered sugar.
