Of all the banana bread recipes I've made this is my fave. It's from my grandmother who gave this to me when I was in my 20's & I still make this way. It won a blue ribbon at a county fair many years ago. It's very moist and delicious.
I don't have a photo now but will post one next time I bake a loaf!
