Quick & Easy Banana Nut Bread

Kathy Sterling


This is a good quick bread that I have made since 1967 when I was a newly wed.

I had never had homemade quick breads before that time and an Army Wife introduced me to them and the rest is history.

I always wait until my bananas are heavily speckled so they are soft and sweet.

Great for breakfast or as a dessert, this bread never disappoints. Enjoy the ease of the recipe and make a double batch to share.
