Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Shakin_Bakin_Mom

This is THE best Banana bread I've ever had and the one my kids beg me for and also the one I make for X-mas gifts every year. I found this recipe in an old Settlement cookbook (my favorite cookbook) and it's extremely easy to make. It has just the right amount of moist flavor and is great either chilled or at room temperature. This bread freezes well too and is easiest to slice when it's cold. Enjoy!

this was a very nice banana bread.made my kitchen smell wonderful as it was baking.i spread one slice with peanut butter as you can tell from the pictures,and the peanut butter didn't overpower the banana taste at all.thank you for posting.
