Maple banana pecan bread...

I've been meaning to post this recipe for a few weeks now...
For those of you who follow my instagram feed, 
you've probably seen a little cheeky pic I took on my iphone of this gloriously yummy banana bread, so, as promised, here's the post, including of course, the recipe!
In my opinion it doesn't get much better than this in terms of flavour combinations...
you seriously cant beat maple syrup (check), banana (check) and pecans (check)
Ooh and lets not forget..lovely drizzly icing, mmmmmm
Try it, believe me, you'll love it!

Ingredients and directions for one loaf

2 cups of flour
3/4 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup of sugar
5 tablespoons of butter
