The Mayflower Hotel has been making banana bread since the 1950s and it has become one of the hotel’s signature items, used as a turn down amenity, served in the hotel’s restaurant Edgar, and even as a dessert at many weddings held in the hotel. Fun fact: The Mayflower Hotel uses over 20,000 bananas each year to bake over 10,000 loaves of banana bread.
