Meghan Markle is officially the best Duchess ever. During a stop on her first official royal tour, Meghan brought banana bread that she personally baked for a farming family in Dubbo, Australia. The Duchess of Sussex reportedly decided to bake the delicious treat the night before in the kitchen of Admiralty House in Sydney after her first day of royal engagements. Nothing like a spot of baking in the middle of the night when you're jet-lagged and pregnant to help soothe you to sleep.
This wasn't just any old banana bread recipe, either. Meghan brought her baking A game to her first official royal tour as she added chocolate chips and a "bit of ginger," according to the Daily Mail's Royal Correspondent Rebecca English. She also shared that the banana bread was "rather nice."
Meghan is a longtime fan of cooking and baking. Before shutting down her lifestyle site The Tig, the Duchess often shared recipes she loved with her readers. One of those was a "life-changing banana bread recipe," which included some surprising ingredients such as sunflower seeds, almonds, hazelnuts, and maple syrup. Though it's a little different than the recipe she used in Australia, it's clear Meghan does not mess around when it comes baking.
Once word spread that the Duchess took the time to bake bread and bring a tin of Fortnum & Mason Royal Blend tea for everyone at the Dubbo tour stop, a number of hilarious and heartwarming tweets started pouring in.
