Banana Orange Bread/Muffins

Christine Whisenhunt


I just found a cookbook that my mother put together for our church when I was 9 or 10 that I had forgotten about! This book is full of recipes from all the old grannies that my mother grew up with, so you know they're good! These women were friends of my grandmother, so I knew many of them as well. Let me tell you, these women can COOK! So, I've decided to post some of the recipes that appeal to me and I think may be something you all would like to try as well.

This is the seventh. This sounded amazing, and I just had to share. I'll definitely be making this for breakfast muffins. Enjoy!
