My Banaklava is a combination of banana bread and baklava and came about through me wanting to bake something to mark Novak Djokovic winning Wimbledon. Basically banana’s are eaten by players, such as Djokovic between games during the championships, hence the banana bread reference. While baklava is a traditional sweet pastry treat, found in Middle Eastern countries, such as Serbia, which is where Djokovic is from. The mix of the two baked goods flavors and textures, creates a doubles match that together produces a winning game, set and batch of banaklava!
