Banana Nut Bread

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by CrinV

The original of this recipe came from The Family Circle Encyclopedia of Cooking. I have modified it to our likes. It makes the fluffiest and best Banana bread I have ever had. We love it. Makes one very large loaf or 12 muffins.

Great recipe.. I thought I would try a different banana bread recipe and this sounded like a good one....Turned out perfect...nice and high, I left out the nuts but did add the chocolate...Everything is better with chocolate!
