My family loves Banana Bread – plain, simple, every day! With a super-moist texture, buttery banana flavor, and incredibly soft crumb, this is our family-favorite banana bread recipe. This has been our go-to recipe for generations, tried and true, tender and flavorful – in a word, PERFECT!
Most folks have problems because they have too many over-ripe bananas - around here, it's just the opposite - we never have enough! From the time my kids were little, right after they learned to mix muffins, they immediately graduated to helping make Banana Bread. This is our absolutely favorite family recipe for the best banana bread ever!
