Banana bread is one of those foods that we have all had at one point or another. I personally like my banana bread without nuts but I know a lot people are the opposite. After many failed attempts, I finally found the magic ingredient to give this loaf that little extra it was always lacking. Here you’ll find the recipe for a super moist and downright amazing banana bread. You can easily add nuts to this if you would like but I love it just the way it is. Happy baking!
