2/13/08 You will never find a moister banana bread! The color is a deep brown so it is as gorgeous as it tastes.

This particular "Kona Inn" recipe is the one I have used for over 15 years.
I make 4 mini loaves as gifts for teachers and friends.

My twist: I always add 1/2 C mini chocolate chips. Dried cranberries are good too!

4/13/2012 Edit to add: I do not use vegetable shortening. The version of Kona Inn Banana Bread that I use, calls for margarine or butter.
