Homemade Banana Bread Recipe

Banana Bread Recipe

One of my husband’s favorite recipes, is my homemade Banana Bread recipe.  He loves my Banana Bread so much, a few years ago he requested it for his birthday cake.  Now, that was just funny because for 25 years he picked my German Chocolate cake for his birthday.  Just proves that even after all this time, that man can still surprise me!

Of course, I got busy and made his birthday Banana Bread.  He even shared with the rest of us.  Well, after he sliced off the first 3 pieces.

Now, I know to make my Banana Bread for his birthday breakfast, so he can still enjoy his German Chocolate cake for dessert.  That way he can have both for his birthday!

This really is a delicious bread and so very easy to make.  Anytime we have company, I bake a homemade banana bread.  Everyone seems to like it and it makes a great breakfast, afternoon treat or even a wonderful dessert.

    Great banana bread recipe! I do add chopped almonds to mine, and chopped zucchini.

  2. I’ve never been a fan of bananas, but I DO love banana bread — especially banana NUT bread. I’m tempted to make myself some now. 🙂
