Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Sara in FL

This banana bread is very easy and quick to prepare. A friend of my mother's gave me the recipe. I prefer it without the nuts, but it's entirely up to you. I love the sugar on top; it gives it a nice extra sweetness.

This was great banana bread, I wished it could have risen a bit more. I added the choped nuts to is. This is a lovely rich bread that has a wonderful banana taste...thanks so much for posting Sara...Kittencal :)
