I found this delicious bread recipe in a Femina magazine I got as a gift a week ago from a cousin of mine. It was called simply "Banana bread" in the magazine, but, it's silky texture when all the ingredients are mixed, forced me to change the title. I was thinking of Anu while making the bread and logged on to find a request on the recipe board from her for recipes she can make ahead and freeze. Now, this one just simply has to be dedicated to my friend, Anu. Anu, I hope you enjoy this bread!
