Bestest Ever Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Cuistot

This recipe is so old the paper is yellowed and stained! It's a staple in our house and has been used for muffins, cake or bread. I've added cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg to really spice it up, or chocolate chips and nuts to make a special treat. It's always a huge hit and freezes well. It's moist, light and fluffy. This will make 4 loaves, so you may want to half it. But I like making two loaves and then a bunch of muffins, one loaf will get delivered to a neighbor, the other devoured by the kids and the muffins get frozen and pulled out for breakfast treats.

This is a really tasty bread. I halved the recipe and got one big loaf out of it. I used yoghurt instead of sour cream and it seemed to do the job fine. Thanks!
