This recipe was given to my mother by my Great Grandma Armour back in the early 60's. It is the only recipe we have used in our family and for good reason. I have never found another recipe for banana bread that is as moist, easy, and delicious. I absolutely love tried and true old family recipes. I plan to hand this recipe down to my daughter as well. My husband loves to toast it and cover it with peanut butter. My daughter just likes to eat it plain.

One bite and I see why this is the only banana bread recipe that Jody's family uses. This banana bread is easy, moist, delicious and full of banana flavor. I like the idea of using a bundt pan. It makes for a beautiful presentation. The Test Kitchen
