From Metropolitan Cookbook 1964...I love old cookbooks! I love the combination of peanut butter and bananas in this quick bread. (Edited to adjust the baking times to 35-45 minutes and not the original 1 hour. My oven it takes almost a complete 45 minutes where reviewers are baked in 35 minutes. Just check after 35 minutes so it does not get overbaked!)
