If you have read my earlier post, you know how much I'm possessed of buying bananas just to make this Banana Bread. After buying, I literally wait for next 2-3 days or until it shows dark spots on its skin. That's the correct time when bananas would be at its peak of sweetness. And you are ready to go for making this delicious  Banana Bread.

RECIPE NOTES
If you don’t have cinnamon powder, take heaped teaspoon of cinnamon sticks broken into small pieces. Grind it along with sugar. Tip: Put cinnamon first and sugar over it, to grind well. For a low fat Banana bread, you can replace 1/2 cup of oil with 1/4 cup oil + 1/4 cup curd.
