Recipe: Banana Bread

This recipe for Banana Nut Bread is the same as my Banana Nut Muffins… just in bread form…. but I get a lot of requests for Banana Nut Bread … people don’t realize they are one and the same… so I decided to post the recipe again… this time under Banana Bread.

It’s a very simple recipe… The bread is delicious and I get requests to make it all the time… the secret is in the butter and sprinkling of the baking soda.

I hope you enjoy it!
