You will love this Easy Banana Bread Recipe!
I had a few bananas starting to brown this morning and that mixed with the cloudy skies out my window put me in the baking mood! I decided to whip up some of my Grandmas Easy Banana Bread Recipe!
My sweet grandmother shared this Banana Bread Recipe with me years ago, and we have been loving it ever since!
There is just something so sweet and special about making a recipe that I know has been made for generations. I’m going to be keeping this recipe close to my heart and can’t wait to one day share the recipe with my own grandchildren.
It only takes a few minutes to whip up this quick bread…..and honestly only a few minutes to eat it till it’s gone……
This recipe is the best way to use up bananas that are turning brown or even frozen bananas! Just pull the bananas out of the fridge, let them defrost for an hour or two, smash them up and plop them into the mixer.
