A very tasty banana bread recipes

An easy and delicious Banana Nut Bread Recipe just for you! I have been making this for many years and every batch tastes as good as the first.

Banana Bread is best made from bananas that are ripe (turning black on the peel). I have found that if I buy my bananas on the weekend, by Thursday or Friday of the following week (6 days), They are ripe enough for the Banana Bread Recipe.

Since some of my children do not like nuts, I will make my loaves half with nuts, half without, and also make my loaves in the mini loaf pans, size 3″ x 5″ x 1 1/2″ deep.
