Gold Standard Banana Bread

I admit to making more than one recipe for banana bread.  This one though, is my favorite!  It is a time tested, tender, flavorful bread that can’t be beaten.  It has just the right amount of spice and perfect balance of banana flavor.  It mixes up just a little different than your average banana bread – maybe that’s one of the reasons that it really is the gold standard!   ~Kathy
