I love my cousin Judy who refers to me dearlingly as "Ruffle Butt" because she babysat me when I wore tights with ruffles on the bottom! This is the perfect banana bread and is so easy to make. No need to use a mixer. The nuts are optional, but I love walnuts. Judy say's anything can go into this--raisins, cranberries etc.
