    This bread is excellent, but I found the instructions to be a little lacking. Never does it say to mix the dry ingredients together and for a novice, that would be confusing. The bread is still yummy, and makes a great hostess gift, especially during the holidays!

    This is my go-to banana bread recipe. Everyone loves it! My copy, the original, is from Cooking Light a number of years ago. I often double the recipe and make 3 or 4 smaller loaves to keep and give away.
