Lea's Banana Bread

Leanne D.


A friend of mine sent this recipe to me as a banana cake.She frosted the cake with a cream cheese frosting. One day I had some over-ripe bananas and wanted to make banana bread,I couldn't find my bread recipe,so I decided to use this recipe instead. Everyone loved it.It was sweet but not too sweet. Now,this is my go to banana bread recipe.I sometimes like to slather it with whipped cream cheese.I still haven't made it as a cake!
