“I have been testing and trying banana bread recipes for the past couple of years trying to find "the best" one for my recipe collection. Recently, I noticed this recipe on a bag of flour that I purchased. The recipe on the bag carried the name "Best Ever Banana Bread". I figured I had to try it. I did and now I will look no further. This is the one makes it into my recipe book. It is moist and full of flavor. It's the perfect banana bread. Thank you Gold Medal Flour.”
