I’m sharing with you how to make perfect soft and fluffy banana bread. It’s one of my go too’s when I have a few bananas that are looking a little brown sitting in my kitchen. Enjoy it fresh or it’s perfect toasted with a little butter for breakfast in the morning.

This recipe was simple to make and very delicious. I had another recipe that used butter so I was afraid to try this one but I am glad I tried it. It's going to be my new recipe because the bread was more moist. Also, no need to use my mixer makes for easy clean up afterward!
