This is the best banana bread recipe ever, I promise !!!! It is my late great-granny's. She would make tons of it and give it out for presents at Christmas. Everyone couldn't wait until then to get it, so I sweet talked granny into giving it!

I used three over ripe bananas and I still did not taste much banana flavor. The bread did not turn out moist but kind of dry. Sorry Rennug but it did not work for me
