I love banana bread and cannot get enough of it.  Who’s with me?
When we were deciding what to take to brekkie on Mother’s Day, Dan said he could make up some loaves of banana bread.  Now who am I to argue with that.  Of course we had to do a test run just to make sure it tasted ok.  And it did!  Here’s the recipe so you can enjoy it too.
