I know some people do not think of Banana Bread as being a dessert but I for one like it warm with a pat of butter or with some sweet sauce over the top. It can be eaten for breakfast, as a snack and as a dessert.
No matter when or which way you serve this bread it's always a treat. So try it tonight and watch your family smile with delight.
