Nana's Banana Bread

"In my opinion, this is the absolute best banana bread out there. I got it through a mail order recipe club called "Grandma's Kitchen". It is so easy to make, and it seems like everyone always has some ripening bananas that they're trying to get rid of!"

    I too have been making this bread for years. For so long that food.com was still Recipezaar. 2009 I printed this out and it is by far the most flavorful, moist bread ever. I always double the recipe and always add 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips per loaf. Deeeelicious! As a matter of fact I just whiped out 4 loaves. House smells amazing!!

    Would you suggest tweaking cooking time and temperature if I made banana muffins instead of a loaf?

    I have been using this recipe for 10 years and it turns out perfect every time! I even substitute whole wheat flour for 3/4 out of the 1 and 3/4 of all-purpose flour and my two daughters love having this for breakfast!
