For as long as I can remember, my Mom's been making this banana bread. It's so delicious and simple, there's no reason to try any other recipe!

Wow! What a great recipe! I chopped up some pecans for this one. I think this is my keeper recipe!

Ok this was GREAT! I only have one complaint...and it's probably my fault. I wanted a softer crust that's kinda gooey and sticky on top. If anyone has a suggestion on how to acheive that with this recipe (because it's awesome otherwise) please send me a message. Good job Rapunzel!!

I love, love, love the photo. It makes me want to make this bread. :) My family has never been a "bread" family (although we eat a lot of it). I can imagine how this must make the kitchen smell while you're baking it. Too bad we don't have scratch-n-sniff on BakeSpace! (Hmmmm... that's an idea)
