Another one my mom always made when I was growing up. I love it when it's still warm with a little butter spread on a slice. I have also used this recipe to make mini-loaves which I gave away at Christmas, and they were a big hit.

I have made many different Banana Bread receipes, but this one is the best!! My husband went and bought more bananas so they can ripen so I can make more!! It was a hit with my kids also. Everyone loved it and it was easy to make!
