This is my favorite Easy Homemade Banana Bread Recipe! It was passed down on my Dad’s side of the family and has been made for generations. I have an old recipe card that my Mom gave me when I was a teenager that is covered in splotches and stains from making this bread for years. We won’t mention how many years it has been since I was a teenager. LOL!
I had to squint to read the recipe on the recipe card I have been using it for so long. I decided writing a blog post was the perfect way to preserve the recipe and know that I would have it for years to come. I can’t believe we first shared this recipe back in June of 2011! I realized this week that I hadn’t updated the photos since 2011 and they were downright scary! I have made 100’s of loafs of Banana Bread since 2011 and for some reason never realized I needed to take new pics of them. This was my perfect excuse for bright spring flowers in the house and making 5 beautiful loafs of bread to share.
This easy banana bread recipe is truly a family favorite that I hope you fall in love with! It is super easy to make and tastes so good! I tend to make 2-3 loaves at a time of this bread because it disappears so quickly. At our old house, I would have to make a couple of extras for the neighbors. John would show up at work with banana bread and by the end of the day all his co-workers would stop by the house and see if there was any more left. I would hide a loaf in the kitchen so we always had a bit for us and then give away all of the rest of the bread.
I am interested to see how long it takes our new neighbors to realize that I spend a large part of the week in the kitchen baking and trying new recipes. lol!
