Recipe Tips:

  • Slicing Banana Bread – If you have a whole loaf of banana bread, we recommend slicing in about the same size. This way it cooks evenly and serving is a breeze.
  • Soaking Bread – Only soak the bread for about 1 to 2 minutes. Do not soak to long as it could cause the bread to be soggy. You can place the bread in a shallow bowl or a baking dish.
  • Heat Griddle – Before placing the bread on the griddle, make sure to heat and melt butter. This prevents the bread from sticking and creates a delicious texture.
  • Cook Bread – Cook each side of the bread on the griddle. You will know that you bread is done cook when it is golden brown.
