    pollen's Note:

    this is an unusual banana bread recipe in that it uses a solid rather than liquid fat (ie. butter not oil), unlike most quickbread recipes, and is made more like cookies are. the result is very delicious, though - a super-light, slightly rich, moist bread. the recipe comes from an african cookbook.

      This is my favorite banana bread. My daughter and I love it. It is very moist bread and my family and friends love it too. My sister does not like banana bread except this one. Thank you pollen for posting it here on food.com.
