    Juju Bee's Note:

    In my opinion, this is the absolute best banana bread out there. I got it through a mail order recipe club called "Grandma's Kitchen". It is so easy to make, and it seems like everyone always has some ripening bananas that they're trying to get rid of!

      Lifesaver! I have been saving bananas for over a week now, and I misplaced the recipe card. (Yes, we received it as a freebie several years ago.) Thank goodness this one was posted! I don't even like bananas much, but we all eat through a loaf so fast around here that they do not last very long. It is great when it comes out of the oven, especially the crisp ends. And on the following days, it is a great snack "on the go" if you cut a slice, cube it and stick those in a plastic bag. OK...heating up the oven in 3...2...1...

      I also go this recipe in a mailer. This is the best Banana Bread I have ever made and I have made my share. I also use this recipe to make carrot bread, apple bread and zucchini bread. I just change up the vanilla and sometimes add cinnamon. The results are the same, I make this as gifts and give it away and I am always asked for this recipe.
