How one could pass on warm banana bread straight from the oven with a pat of butter, I will never, ever, be able to understand.
This is my family's banana bread recipe and it's extremely well loved and received. I am sure you have your own family recipe but, I encourage you to give this one a try because it's subtle taste of banana and nice cake like consistency is rivaled by few breads I've had in the past.
Plus. Easy breezy for a bread recipe.
