It is for all these reasons that I leave this recipe available on my site, even if I now rarely make it. (I also leave some notes of possible substitutions). After all, this banana bread is homemade with essential ingredients, which is already a thousand times better than an overwrapped snack with mysterious ingredients prepared by the food industry, when we say that nothing is black or white!

Perfect recipe: If you like rose water, choose plain yogurt and two tablespoons of rose water for flavor. Garnish the top of your cake with pistachio and bake. A real treat!

If you don't have buttermilk

Just add a few drops of lemon juice or white vinegar to a cup of milk to reproduce the chemical effect of buttermilk. One less purchase for the same result!
