Mix all ingredients very well in a large mixing bowl. Pour into a greased loaf pan.

Bake in a preheated 350 oven for about an hour (or a little more), removing from the oven when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. (A crack in the top is characteristic.)

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe from Grandma Fern's mom Grandma Nana (Florence Lindskoog) was adopted by Aunt Carrie and Uncle John Lindskoog. They have encouraged a lot of people with a hot loaf of banana bread at special times.

The first year the Bunney/Sarhad side of the family celebrated Christmas at the cabin, Uncle John brought us a warm loaf of this bread just as we were getting ready to pull out from Grandma Fern's place. We tucked it into the very last space left in the car, under the Christmas wreath. It perfumed our ride all the way to the cabin, leaving a fragrant memory.
