This recipe is written on a pink piece of cardstock and sooo faded I can barely read it! Also well used. This recipe was handed down by my Grams (Grandma Berry) who was from the Netherlands and Dairy Farmers. She's the one who told us all to use the BEST ingredients. The recipe only has only a list of ingredients and baking time and temp!! I will include directions for you. :)

We're sure you have a similar style recipe that's handed through generations that you cherish. This banana bread is a great recipe with a sweet story. Make it in your own kitchen and enjoy!

Note: Check the doneness of your bread with a toothpick at 55 minutes. Depending on your oven, it could be done a few minutes earlier than an hour. The Test Kitchen
