I confess. I have a sweet tooth. And I like banana bread. A lot. So you can imagine my anticipation when Waji The Baker sent me some of his famed banana bread.
The bread was delivered promptly and professionally and a peek into the bag revealed three different kinds of banana breads: Nutella, chocolate chip and walnut. At first glance they all looked pretty amazing. Perfectly equal in size and deliciously golden brown on the top.
I decided to taste the chocolate chip banana bread first. Did I mention my sweet tooth?
Cutting through the bread showed a perfect consistency. The bread was delicious and very fresh. Unlike a lot of cakes I’ve tried here, it was not greasy or heavy, but light and moist. The partially melted chocolate chips on the top of the bread provided the perfect crunch and flavour combination to the banana.
The Nutella and walnut breads were equally good. I felt the Nutella on the top was a tad too sweet even for me, but my daughter who is usually not a banana bread fan loved it.
I highly recommend that you try out Waji’s breads. You will not be disappointed. Prices are very reasonable, between 350-450 rupees depending on the kind of banana bread, and orders can be placed via his Facebook page. Next time you’re in the mood for a little something to go with your chai or have guests over for tea, give Waji a buzz.
