Very yummy banana bread!!!
I am SOOOO impressed with this banana bread! Not only is it tender, moist and delicious, but it also looks great. Most other banana bread recipes I've tried resulted in an unattractive dark brown color. This bread is a beautiful light golden brown when done. One recipe was just enough for 6 mini bundts, which took 30 minutes to bake. Thanks craftymama!
