THE best banana bread EVER! Always a hit, and many requests for the recipe. Made as written.

I've made this a number of times and it is the best banana bread I have ever had. I always add about 1/2 teaspoon of banana extract for a little extra banana taste. Very moist!

Without a doubt, this is the best Banana Bread ever. It is tastey and moist. It is absolutely decadent if you slice it and toast it under a toaster oven and then put a little butter on the slice. It also works well for muffins. Then you have portion control. The muffins freeze well too. Try it. You will not be disappointed!
