The Only Banana Bread Recipe You'll Ever Need

Simple to make and a great way to use up those last 2-3 overripe bananas! Always dependable & moist, and try substituting ingredients; regular milk for the buttermilk, half brown sugar for the sugar, chocolate chips for the raisins-the possibilities are endless. Not too sweet-my grandson has been making this since he was in a highchair at 1 year old.
