Pre-ordered Freshly Baked Banana Bread Loaf by Makati Shangri-La
An American Classic from the Pâtissiers of Shangri-La
Initially borne as a way to ration food and upcycle overripe bananas during the Great Depression of the 1930s, Banana Bread is now a timeless recipe enjoyed in every home, anywhere in the world. Only available for Saturday deliveries.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
With a piece of loaf so rooted in home kitchens as a slice of banana bread, Makati Shangri-La pays homage to this humble loaf by creating simple yet utterly satisfying loaves of banana bread perfected through years of culinary expertise.
Banana Bread Plain Loaf: A beautiful golden brown loaf, slightly gooey and sticky on top, that opens to reveal moist slices of banana bread. Incredibly well-balanced, sweet without being cloying, with the taste of sweet ripe bananas at every bite.
Banana Bread Coffee Hazelnut Loaf: Your classic loaf with the infusion of coffee and chunks of chocolate folded in, and toasted, chopped hazelnuts generously sprinkled on top for an added crunch. This loaf of banana bread is an addicting treat sure to please any sweet tooth!
PREPARATION OR PAIRINGS
A quality bread such as Makati Shangri-la’s is delicious as is. However, for the dessert lovers, top with fresh fruits or jams. For those wanting something light and creamy to balance this sweet bread, place a dollop of Échiré Crème Fraîche or swipe some Échiré Demi Sel Butter on top before digging in.
In addition, since bananas have a very low glycemic index, it’s a great energy booster perfect for your mornings! Substitute your French Toast recipe with banana bread slices instead of white bread, and enjoy this as a Banana Bread French Toast. Perfect with your cup of brewed coffee or Gryphon Earl Grey Tea!

Baked fresh on Saturday mornings at Makati Shangri-La. They are best stored for up to two days in a resealable plastic bag. Place the bag in a cool, dry place, as sunlight and heat will make the bread sweat and encourage mold growth. Never store bread in the refrigerator, or else it will dry out. To store for longer, slice the bread and wrap it in parchment paper, then place it in a ziplock bag in the freezer for up to three months.
To refresh frozen bread, take it out of the freezer to thaw in the parchment for about six hours. Preheat your oven to 200°C and bake your bread for 3 – 5 minutes.
