This is hands down my favorite banana bread recipe and I'm posting it here for safe keeping. I got the recipe off the Cooking Light website and they give credit to Kathleen Daeleman and her book "Cooking Thin With Chef Kathleen". This bread isn't too sweet and I love the texture. If your using a darker baking pan, check the bread at about 1 hour.

Good! I checked the bread at one hour but needed a little more time. I added 15 more minutes then took the bread out. The bread was a liitle well done after this. Nex time I will take out after 70 minutes. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
