Meghan Markle brought her homemade banana bread to an official royal visit, and we need this recipe, like, now
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first royal tour has already brought us so many unforgettable moments—from the grand debut of Markle’s baby bump, to her killer styles, to an adorable photo op with a koala, the royal couple continues to slay as they make their way around Australia. And while we’re sure the newlyweds have plenty on their plate between all the meetings and traveling, it seems that the Duchess of Sussex found some time to bake homemade banana bread, which she brought with her on a royal visit in Dubbo, Australia. And it looks seriously delicious.
On October 17th, the pair paid a visit to the Mountain View Farm in Dubbo, where they chatted with staff about sustainability practices and adapting to drought conditions. They enjoyed a tea party with the Woodley family, who have been running a livestock and crop farm since 1887, per Kensington Palace.
According to the Daily Mail‘s royal correspondent Rebecca English, Markle brought along her very own homemade banana bread, which she baked the night before in the kitchen of Admiralty House, where she and her husband are staying for this portion of their trip.
Bringing a touch of England with them as well, the couple brought royal blend tea by Fortnum and Mason.
As for how it tasted? English noted that it had chocolate chips and hints of ginger, and seemingly got rave reviews from those who were lucky enough to get a taste (she noted it was nearly gone before the Duke and Duchess even left). Benita Woodley, whose parents Scott and Elaine currently farm the 3,000 acre Mountain View Farm, said, “It was such a nice and thoughtful thing for her to do. We are really touched.”
Any chance you’ll release that recipe, Meghan?
