Ever had one of those slices of banana bread that you wondered if it was cut off of a brick? And your search for the perfect recipe continued? 

Several years ago, I was searching high and low for a good recipe. A family member was nice enough to share this one, and you are gonna to be so happy I am sharing the love with all of you!

I mean, who doesn’t love a slice of warm moist banana bread? This is one of my all-time favorite recipes. It is so delish. Mmm.

Every time someone walked in the house while the bread was baking, this afternoon, they loved the sweet smell in the air. 

I made a quick video so you will see just how easy it is to make the bread. Scroll down when you’re done to print out the recipe.

[…] The bread has a soft center and a butter-flavored top crust that’s crunchy. It’s almost like a muffin top, where you’re tempted to slice off the entire top and eat it all in one sitting. […]

Hi Kathy,

What type of pan did you use? I usually use a stoneware pan, so I wonder if that holds in the heat more and cooks faster. Thanks for letting me know. :)
