So good that it served only 6p :) Baked only 30 min. Thanks for sharing, really easy and I promised my kids to make it again with them (especially for my little 3years old son who pretends not to like bananas...)

Love this recipe, very easy to make and love the deep banana flavor. I used three good sized bananas and added some pecans because I love nuts in my banana bread. Made for ZWT #7 and team Witchin Kitchen. Miss being on your team this year Florida Native!
