    Mommy Diva's Note:

    I have been making this recipe I found in Betty Crocker and modified to my liking for 20 years or so. My family loves it - and even a few of my husband's co-workers look forward to it at the holidays now! I like to make mini loaves of this (half with nuts and half without), my Chelle's Pumpkin Bread and Chelle's Zucchini Bread and make little "gift trays" for the holidays. ;)

      I did not have bananas and used grated Zucchini, adding 1t cinnamon. I knew it was going to be great just by tasting that batter. Mine came out moist and wonderful! Thanks.

      This came out delicious!! I also used all butter and used pecans. Hubby took it in to work and they devoured it. Made for Mommy's Diva's Cookathon 2012.

      I made this recipe as posted but used all butter instead of margarine. It was so very tasty and moist and one I will make often as DH couldn't get enough of this wonderful banana bread. Thanks Mommy Diva for a super tasty treat. Made for the Dining Daredevils for ZWT5 Family Picks.
