Best Banana Bread Ever!

Judy Maranger


I've made a lot of different kinds of bread including banana bread. This is the best I've tasted. I got this recipe from a friend, who got it from her sister-in-law. My husband usually doesn't like this kind of bread, but he likes this one. My grandson loves it!
