My kiddos are sucker for Orange flavor. Especially my older one. Last week I had bananas sitting on my counter top. So made these again. As soon as the kiddos walked through front door, they said "Hmmmm.. that smells sooooo good". Sunny boy immediately added "Is that orange cake or something?". LOL, yeah, your home smells divine when you bake this cake.
Try this low fat variation of the bread. You can replace the eggs by Flax-seed flour (2 tbsp. soaked in 2 tbsp. of water.)

Ideas to serve:
- You can serve it while topping with fresh banana and honey. Or any kind of jam you have.
- Toast it a little bit and you can top it with cream cheese or peanut butter. Cream cheese topping has been my favorite so far.
- To serve as dessert, you can toast the bread lightly and serve with vanilla ice-cream.
