Delicious Banana Bread

  1. Your banana bread does look delicious. I’m loving that you added honey to your ingredient list. I would have never thought of that!

  2. My mother-in-law makes a mean zucchini bread that is very similar to this. I think I’d probably like the banana even more!

  3. I love the smell of banana bread baking in the oven. Oh, and fall is coming up…… favorite time to bake!

  4. I love banana bread. I actually have bananas waiting to make some right now.
