“I LOVE banana bread. So, I have made it for many years. I am always looking to get the flavor just perfect! I use "old" bananas. The upscale produce shop won't sell them, so I usually call and see if they have any. That way I can use them right away AND they sell them to me super cheap! I usually bake around 150 mini loaves to include in my Christmas Goodies Bags. I like my recipes to have measurements for items, sizes for pans, and baking directions. So you will find all of that in this recipe that I have finally decided I have "tweeked" it right down to d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s.”
