Thursday, April 02, 2015

Yay! It's holiday, that means it's BAKING TIME! Today, there are a guest visiting my family for dinner who loves banana bread very much, so I whipped up this super healthy buckwheat banana bread for her as dessert. And once I finished baking this banana bread, I can't stop myself from having 3 slices already :P And the house just smells so good while I was baking this. And did I mention that it was just so easy to make?
