Actor Mario Cantone has established a side-career as a baker after finding a local New York bakery to sell batches of his banana bread.

The Sex and the City star shared his recipe with viewers during a cooking segment on U.S. talk show The View on Wednesday (28Jan15) and revealed the savoury treat has become a nice little earner for him - when he can be bothered to bake.

He explained, "I sell this banana bread to a coffee shop in my neighbourhood... I don't do it every week, it's just basically when I have no life! (It's called) Mario's Banana Bread. It's at Stone Street Coffee..."
