The Best Banana Bread

Banana Bread: Corpus Christi Mom's Blog

From My Grandma’s Kitchen

My Grandma’s bananas were always going bad. She could never eat them fast enough. Which wasn’t a bad thing, because it meant every time we visited her she had a fresh loaf of banana bread. As she increased in age, she could never remember where her banana bread pans were, and when she passed away we found dozens of loaf pans in various cupboards. This memory always makes me chuckle.

The past couple weeks I have needed all the things that make me smile and bring comfort. For me, a loaf of banana bread did just the trick. I assure you, once you make it, you will believe me. It is worth every stick of rationed butter in your fridge!
