“I love ALL of them… hard to choose… but since I am Italian and in the morning or afternoon like to have a cake that is not sweet, I like the banana bread. Being home bound, it seems we need a scone or your banana bread with tea as a treat! THANKS for all the cooking inspiration. 🙂”

      1. I have stepped into Powerscourt Center before and admired it’s beautiful layout. Never went to a restaurant/cafe there. I have Queen of Tarts on my list, but have’t got a chance to visit. Will check out both places. Thanks for the tip 🙂

  2. This looks delicious. I do like easy recipes like this one. I just made some fig and walnut bread as an alternative to banana bread. Both of these are lovely as a breakfast dish. I will give this one a try.
