My mother gave me this recipe. My husband is a big fan of banana bread and loves this recipe. He usually requests 2 or three loaves each year for hunting camp and shares it with his buddies. Very easy to make.

My neighbor gave me a similar recipe, but hers uses 2 cups of flour and adds a 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and 3 tblsp of milk. Everything else is exactly the same... :)

Great recipe! I added just a little vanilla and cinnamon and it turned out wonderfully. I'll use this as my go to banana nut bread recipe from now on!

Delicious! I made 3 mini loaves and baked them for about 35-37 minutes. This was a nice basic recipe, easy to put together with yummy results. DS and his friends ate a loaf warm. Thanks for sharing. *Made for Fall PAC 2008*
