Aunt Ida-Mae Parker's Daughter Gina's Banana Nut Bread

Recipe by ThatCaptJim

Another vintage recipe that my mother in law gave to me. The Parkers were pioneers in Arizona and a lot of these are family hand me down's. Cousin Gina's note at the bottom of the dog eared and stained card is this: (NB - add dry ingredients and banana alternatingly [sic] works better...)
