“I have a habit of jotting down promising recipes whenever I'm perusing magazines in a waiting room. This one is on an envelope postmarked 1996. The whole wheat flour and banana flavors in this yeast bread really complement one another. I like to make cheese sandwiches with this, or eat with butter and jam. Try french toast with it, too. It's much lower in fat than the typical quick bread banana bread. Prep time is approximate, depending on which alternative you choose.”

  3. Check for the consistency of the dough - you may need to add more flour or more liquid, depending on the exact size of your bananas.
