Simply Delicious Banana Bread

So I am totally aware that there are a million banana bread recipes out there. But please, hear me out on this one. I’ve had a lot of banana bread in my time but I never really found a recipe that I wanted to make over again until this one.

I love to bake and I love my stand mixer. But when I see browning bananas on my counter I want a recipe that is simple to throw together. This recipe does not require any mixers or electric tools. All you need is a whisk, a couple bowls, some pantry and fridge staples and a strong arm.

Simply mix up your ingredients, throw them in the oven and walaa! A fabulous freshly, baked loaf of banana bread. The this loaf has a moist, tender crumb that is full of banana flavor. A definite crowd pleaser that feels special but is easy enough to make any day of the week. Your family will love this banana bread!
