You can make perfect lunchbox-portioned banana bread with this savvy Kmart hack

An Aussie teacher worked out this awesome trick to making bite-sized treats, and social media is going wild for it!

Everyone has been going crazy for baking in isolation - especially loaves of banana bread.

The trouble is that they can be a bother to divvy up, and they go stale fast, so you might just end up eating the whole loaf in one sitting.

Now that Australian kids are starting to head back to school, instead of sending them off with potentially messy, crumbling slices of your latest bakes, you can now create perfectly portioned treats.

One clever home cook, Andee, shared her genius trick on the Kmart hacks & Decor Facebook group, and people love it.

Andee uses a silicone ice cube tray to make banana bread bites, and "they worked out perfectly," she wrote on her post.

She said that she just used her usual banana bread recipe, but cut down the cooking time from 50 minutes to 15, to account for the smaller mass of each bread bite. "I put two teaspoons of mixture in each hole because I used self-raising flour to make room for them to rise," she also added.

The handy post got more than 250 comments and over 1000 likes! Group members were tagging each other and saying how good the hack was for school lunches:

"This is a fantastic idea... Great for school snacks," wrote one fan.

Another said: "What a great idea. Off to Kmart tomorrow to buy some ice cube trays!"
