      Mom what a perfect gift to myself and hubby. Yep that is what I mean. I am sure this is great as a gift for others and I may do that but for me at this time of year I can make this up and take it to the cottage then just add in the "wet" ingredients and make the bread for summer breakfasts or late n9ght snacks. This will make my life so much easier and my minimal cottage cupboards less crowded.Now I can leave the gifts on the counter with no worries of ants or summer bugs and still leave cupboard space for the essentials. We love banana bread and to have it fresh during the summer will be great. I doubled the batches and added ground/chopped walnuts to one batch and left the other minus nuts for allergy guests this weekend. Made for Aussie Swap May 2013.
