READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Kim D.

I've tried a lot of banana bread recipes and this is by far the best I've ever tasted! I found the recipe in the Utah Dining Car Cookbook by the Junior League of Ogden.

Made four loaves of this today! Best banana bread recipe ever!
The batter does NOT all fit in one pan. This was perfect for two 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 2 1/2" loaf pans. The timing was perfect though. 1 hour and 15 minutes and they were done! Will definitely make again. This will be my "go to" recipe!
