Directions:

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I use 2 smaller loaf pans and bake it for only 30 minutes. To make sour milk, add 1/2 tsp vinegar to 1 c. milk. VARIATION: I use 1 1/2 c. sugar, I add 1 TB. oil (makes it very moist), 4 TB. milk + 1TB. lemon juice, and 1/2 tsp. salt. This banana bread is my stand-by, very basic, yummy and easy. I sometimes like to cook it @ 325 for 70 min., it avoids the dark crust and gooey middle that sometimes happens with banana bread.
