Mom Cooper's Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Okiegirl

This was my mother-in-laws recipe. She was a fantastic cook and was probably my main source of instruction when I was learning to cook. After this bread cools I like to wrap it in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator. If you do this you will not have a crispy crust - it will be very moist. Then I like to take a slice off, butter it and pop it into the microwave for a few seconds. Yummy!

I made half the recipe to have only 1 loaf. I used half the sugar (1/2 cup). It was perfect. The bread has a great taste and is so moist. Thanks Okiegirl :) Made for the best of 2011 cookbook tag game
