Banana Nut Bread

Bonnie Glazier


This recipe comes from a 1969 Betty Crocker cookbook. I make this banana bread often and everyone loves it, but especially my grandson (now 21, but since he was little) called it Grammy Nut Nut Bread. To this day, it is all he wants every Christmas as his present. He is visiting tomorrow, a nice surprise for him. Sharing this one with my dad, and of course hubby too!
