Best All Time Ever Banana Bread

By  | 


Bananas provide a good source of potassium, vitamins B and C, and a host of other nutrients.  Besides the healthy benefits, they’re tasty. Some prefer to eat them almost green and others prefer ripe bananas, but the best way to use overripe bananas is in bread. Bananas provide a lower cost than other fruit and can be used in puddings, cakes, and breads. Many breads don’t stay moist and delicious, but this recipe for banana bread does. It’s tried and true and comes from a long line of Houston cooks and bakers. If you’re fortunate enough to have the “Scrumptious Cookbook” published by the Houston Junior Forum in 1980, you’ll find the recipe on page 53.
