The Ultimate Banana Bread is super moist, made with simple ingredients. Delicious cake-like banana bread bursting with flavor, it's impossible not to have a second serving! Straight out of the oven, my family kept slicing and slicing and eating, I almost didn't get this photograph, REALLY!
So moist, banana bread practically melts in your mouth! All you need is a glass of milk or some coffee to go with it. Terrific for breakfast or as a snack! You can easily freeze banana breads, wrap with pretty ribbons and give them away as gifts. Try this recipe!
Here's a Tip: Ever wonder what to do with your very ripe bananas? Instead of tossing them, just throw them into your freezer with peel and all. When you need a banana for a recipe, just take out what you need, peel with a knife while frozen and add them to your recipes.
