Banana Bread

It doesn’t get easier than this. Banana bread has been a favorite here since the children were small. It was the first bread I taught the girls to bake. When we score a case of dark bananas at the farmers market we freeze them in just the right amount for a loaf of this wonderfully moist bread. It is a family favorite and both Esther and Mirjam requested it for the bread baskets at their weddings.
A guest at Esther’s wedding requested the recipe and that gave me good reason to post it here for everyone. Serve it a whipped honey butter for a special treat.
