Banana Bread Recipe

When I was growing up, my mother used to make this exact same banana bread recipe. As banana recipes go, this is one you have got to try!

Called “Nana’s Banana Bread” I have yet to learn if there is some treasured family recipe or something clipped out of something, somewhere and saved.

I made it for my family and–they could not get enough of it! Some liked it plain, some liked it with butter, and some (okay, me) liked it with cream cheese. It is dense, it is moist, it is absolutely a wonderful homemade banana bread recipe
