'It's Really on Another Level,' Emma Watson says of her banana bread.

Making banana bread during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is a common occurrence for many people.

The baked good has a small number of ingredients, is easy to make, and requires little cleanup.

Many people shared their versions of the treat during the lockdown and worked hard to perfect their recipe, but Emma Watson perfected her own banana bread recipe years before it became a trend.

Watson's fondness for banana bread dates back many years.

Chocolate chip banana bread is a favorite of the Harry Potter actress.

She admitted back in 2013 that she was obsessively making it.

When Marie Claire asked her to explain her most recent credit card bill, she admitted that she swiped her card several times to buy baking ingredients.

"Ingredients for chocolate chip banana bread," Watson shared, "which I'm obsessed with and have made five times in the last three weeks."

Continuing on, the Noah alum revealed her favorite way to eat banana bread.

"The best thing ever is warm chocolate chip banana bread with milk."

Given how consistently Watson makes banana bread, she's confident in its quality; in fact, in an interview with Interview Magazine in 2017, she revealed that her banana bread was the best.

Watson revealed, "I bake."

"I'm pretty competitive about my chocolate chip banana bread; no one can believe how good it is; it's really on another level," she says.

Watson's banana bread skills are impressive, but they don't extend to all types of bread baking.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower alum revealed on Twitter in May 2021 that she was having trouble with more traditional bread.

"I'm spending the pandemic quietly like most people - failing to make sourdough bread (!)," she wrote.

Watson also admits that when it comes to cooking, she prefers to stick to what she knows.

She did, however, say in the Marie Claire interview that she'd like to go to culinary school to improve her skills.

In fact, the actor's bucket list includes learning more about cooking and baking.

Watson shared, "Going to Le Cordon Bleu for a year would be super bada**."

"I don't like following recipes; I prefer to cook what I know how to cook."

I figure if I really studied, I'd be the kind of person who could open the fridge and say, "I know what I'm going to make with this one piece of celery, this random piece of butter, and this pasta."

Watson is clearly interested in food.

Maybe one day she'll do something special for her fans and share the recipe for her chocolate chip banana bread.
