Best Banana Bread!

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by princessbride029

This bread is very moist - no dry crumbles. Try it, you'll love it! You can of course add nuts or whatever you like to "spice it up," but my favorite way is just bananas!

This is an amazing recipe!! The only drawback for me is how dark it gets when it's done baking. It doesn't take away from the flavor, it's just not aesthetically pleasing to me. I love a beautiful golden brown bread.
