“This is a really moist and tasty banana bread that I've made for years. I got the recipe from my mother-in-law. Update 8/2/07: I have omitted the baking powder from this recipe since the original did not include it; it was not accidentally left out. It is my opinion that banana bread is a quick bread and, therefore, is not supposed to rise like a yeast bread.”
