Blissful Banana Bread

This banana bread comes straight out of my family recipe cook book. Not just any cook book though; my family’s favorite cookbook reserved only for the best recipes. Comparable to the pumpkin bread recipe also featured on this site. If you love that wonderful banana taste mixed with just enough salty and sweetness, then look no further for the perfect recipe. This is it!

* This is the best banana bread recipe I've ever found. As good as any bakery! Makes great muffins too!

*If 1 cup finely chopped walnuts are used, we usually put them in a ziplock and pound the walnuts fine with a can. A food processor can be used too.
