Banana nut bread that just melts in your mouth. And who may we thank, you may ask...The Girl Scouts I know WOW, but really it is fantastic, I learned how to make it when I around the age of 10.

Reviewed for PAC Fall 09. This was a very good banana bread. I was a little concerned about the 300 degree oven temperature, but I followed the recipe exactly. It took about 1 hour and 15 minutes in my oven. I recommend, if making this, you check after 1 hour. Thanks for posting, caryn25.
