Baking Banana Bread

Every once in a while I will find banana's marked down bundled in a bag. They are perfect for baking but not really my taste for snacking I prefer yellow closer to green banana's to snack on. ;) So far today I have baked 4 loaves of bread with my purchase, and two loaves of bread on Friday. I assumed I would have no problem passing out my bread to friends or family. I have been known to make a delicious tasting banana bread but had misplaced that great recipe and have searched for one that tastes similar to my favorite. This one is pretty darn tasty!! I used some scraps from my craft room to decorate the loaves with ribbons, cut out flowers and tags. The tags were created using my Cuttlebug Die and the flowers were using the Cricut machine.
