I often bake & cook for a neighbor couple who are house-bound, & they mentioned banana bread the other day, so here I am, making your recipe! They got most of the loaf, but I kept 4 thin slices for the 2 of us to enjoy here & we did just that! Loved the ease of preparation & the flavor is right on! Thanks for sharing the recipe with us!
