Banana Bread Recipe

the basics

serves many

I make this recipe all the time. The combination of the igredients adds a lot of moisture, so baking times are a bit longer than you might expect. Banana Bread is a recipe that becomes your own as you make it.

I like to toast my slices and then slather them in butter.
