Lion House Banana Bread

by Laura

I recently had an abundance of over ripe bananas. This is the one bread I tend to make the most because it seems like I often have over ripe bananas. When I want a loaf of banana bread, this is my go to banana bread recipe. This banana bread comes from the Lion House Cookbook. I pretty much can count on any recipe from the cookbook to be a good one.

This recipe only makes one large loaf of bread, but can be doubled easily. I do have several other banana bread and banana muffin recipes to make. It all depends on the mood you are in. However, when I want a straight forward classic banana bread, this Lion House Banana Bread recipe is it.

Thank you! My mom has the Lion House Cookb ook, and I’ve grown up on this recipe, but now I’m away from home and without the recipe. I’m so glad I was able to find it!
