    GinaCucina's Note:

    This has got to be my favorite banana bread. I have made so many from this website and others. The key is the frozen bananas.

      I have made this version many time and the fact is everyone loves it. I make a version with nuts and another with dried fruit for those who cannot eat nuts. Both are devoured in no time at all. The flavor is perfect as is the texture and crumb of the bread. If you make this once it will become your go to recipe for banana bread - never dry and never too heavy or soggy.

      This banana bread has a lovely moist texture. I added cinnamon , nutmeg and cardamom to spice it up. This created a great flavor profile. I replaced the butter with canola oil and it worked well.
