Mary Beth's StoryThis banana bread recipe is a variation of one by Paula Deen. I have substituted self-rising flour for ease of mixing, eliminating several ingredients, and the butterscotch morsels for pecans. My kids don't like nuts, so I found the butterscotch morsels to be a surprising and delicious substitute. It has a cake-like quality and makes a great gift for holidays.

I am Canadian. What is the amount of a "stick" of butter?

A stick of butter is 8 tablespoons. We even have the tablespoons marked on the butter wrapper!
