Banana Bread (from Africa!)

“this is an unusual banana bread recipe in that it uses a solid rather than liquid fat (ie. butter not oil), unlike most quickbread recipes, and is made more like cookies are. the result is very delicious, though - a super-light, slightly rich, moist bread. the recipe comes from an african cookbook.”
