Looking for the best banana nut bread ever? Look no further.
My husband tells me it will “make a tadpole hug a whale.” 😀
I don’t think I’d go quite that far… but it is pretty delicious.
Your family will love it slathered with softened butter or maybe a fresh fruit jam.
Oh — and if you love a steamy cup of tea with your bread then you’ll want this one. It’s perfect.
No need to thank me later 😉
