Recipe by ceg8908

This recipe was given to my grandmother when she was pregnant with my father-- a kind neighbor had given her a loaf and it was so delicious she just had to have the recipe! Our family has been making it ever since. It is very moist and full of delicious banana flavor!

MMMMM absolutely awesome! The only difference I made was that I used applesauce instead of oil. Otherwise, I followed this exactly. This turned out great and the flavor is WONDERFUL!
