Easy Banana Bread

Cecelia Anderson


We we were making desserts to sell at a United Way Fundraiser. This is one of the desserts that we sold. It was extremely popular. I have revised the recipe, so please read my comments below. I used to add a banana nut muffin mix to the recipe, but you really don't need it. It comes out very moist and delicious. I find that beating the eggs well, to make them frothy, and adding the dry ingredients gradually to the mixture makes a very moist banana breat. Enjoy as much as I have.
