banana bread with whipped honey butter

the only banana bread I care about is the “banana bread with whipped honey butter and maldon salt” at Great White, a restaurant here in Los Angeles. so naturally, I set out to recreate it.

this banana bread isnt overly sweet, taking into consideration the powdered sugar dusting and whipped honey butter it comes dressed in. a little sprinkle of maldon salt at the end perfectly balances it out. you can watch the video recipe here
