My Grandmother’s Favorite Banana Bread Recipe

WahmReviewer Mary Madalene

When I was younger, I remember that I was always helping out in the kitchen either with my mom or my grandmother. I remember having a lot of “baking parties” when I would spend the night or weekend with my grandmother. Since she lived out in the boonies we needed something for her to entertain me with and that’s when I started to learn to bake.

I would always stand there on the stool beside her at the counter. I would watch her grab all the ingredients that she would need and she would let me add them in to the bowl one by one. I also remember sitting in front of the oven after everything was mixed and in there prepared pans for them to bake in the oven. I would sit there so intently watching and waiting, watching and waiting, so that I could be the first person to smell the wonderful aromas as they baked.  I also loved how she would always give me that very first piece of banana bread each time she made it. It would be so very warm and I would always slather it with butter ( I love the taste of butter and loved how it made the bread even more moist as it melted).  I want to share this recipe with you, so that you can in turn enjoy her favorite Banana Bread just like I did while growing up.
