I love making Banana Bread in fact the whole family loves banana bread! It’s so easy to whip up a loaf and who doesn’t love a warm slice of banana bread with a pat of melted butter? We almost always have banana’s in the house, and on occasion, when they may be getting a little old and are maybe to ripe to eat I toss them in the freezer.
Once I have a few collected in my freezer I will bake up a couple of loaves. Because we are a small family, there is only the 3 of us, I may put a loaf in the freezer for later. They also make a wonderful hostess if you are going for a visit to someone’s house!!
Here is my tried and true recipe, I hope your family loves it as much as mine!!
