    Kat's Mom's Note:

    From "A Passion for Baking" by Marcy Goldman, a cookbook I recently purchased that has taught me much about baking. This batter is amazingly light, as is the finished loaf. As you can see from my picture, if you give into the wonderful fragrance and try to slice this while it is warm, it may break into yummy pieces!

      Company stopping by, nothing to offer but 3 very over ripe bananas. !Banana Bread! This was wonderful, Moist but, not to heavy as some banana breads can be. I had one slice, delish! Would have more, but gotta save for company:). Thanks for sharing.
