Banana Bread a great homemade gift idea

Banana bread brings back so many memories to me. The smells of it baking. The taste of it after it’s cooled. It’s a delicious way to use up old bananas and make a delicious night time snack. That’s when I usually make it.  I don’t think  about it for breakfast. I think about it when I’m looking for a dessert after dinner!

My family loves to make and eat banana bread! It’s one of our favorite things to do when we have leftover bananas going bad. It also makes a great gift idea for family and friends. This is my tried and true recipe that we make over and over again. So why not try it for your family?
