This is a delicious and easy recipe for Banana Bread that a co worker, named Judy, gave me about 5 years ago. I am not a baker by any means, i seem to mess up even the easiest cookie recipes but i have managed to make this banana bread over and over again and its always perfect! The other thing reason i love to make this bread is because everytime I give my son, Gavin, a banana he only eats a few bites of it, so i started throwing the rest of the banana in a ziplock bag and sticking in the freezer. When i have three or four bananas I thaw them in the microwave and they are ready for the recipe and actually a little sweeter and easier to mash than before they were frozen. Hope you enjoy this recipe!
