Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is my grandmother's banana bread recipe. My mother still makes it for me, my siblings, and now for her grandchildren when we come home for the holidays. My mother's siblings also have carried on the love for this recipe. In fact, it's not uncommon for the family to receive multiple loaves from my mother's brothers and sister during the holiday season!
