I made this last night for our family to get rid of some over ripe bananas and it is delicious. Very simple to make - I put it in two smaller bread pans and they looked great!

I just made this tonight and doubled the recipe because I had a lot of bananas to use. I'm so glad that I went ahead and did that because it's wonderful and I know it will go quickly!
