Anne's Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Lindi

I found this recipe after my mother passed away and we moved into my childhood home. I remember her making it, but didn't remember just how good it is. It's the best banana bread I've ever had.

This is a very moist banana bread. My little girls love it! Thanks! Incidentally, the recipe doubles very easily, which is good news for large families...
