Banana Bread

This recipe comes to us from my brother-in-laws sister, Katarina Felsted. Everyone has their favorite banana bread recipe and so did I. For years I used the same recipe and didn't worry too much because I am not usually a banana bread lover... Until now. Just recently I added this one to the golden book of beloved recipes. This recipe makes for loaves so moist and so delicious that it just melts in your mouth. I'm not exaggerating. We actually find reasons to let our bananas go brown just so we can make this recipe. Thanks Kat!
