I'm trying to stay away from sweets, but this one sounds like a winner.

Do you have a recipe for banana bread?

The Merry Widow said...

No, I use a mix...not one of our favorites.

Hammer?

nanc said...

this is no lie - the VERY best recipe i've found for banana bread is on the back of a "jiffy" biscuit box - you know the kind you can get three for a dollar? there are only like three ingredients you have to add, and i might add, have never gotten better compliments on a banana bread like this one. we also put cream cheese frosting on it...you know...because it just wasn't fattening enough...

Eyes said...

:>D I thought for sure ya'll would have one.... oh welll....

Jiffy also make a decent banana nut bread/muffin mix too.
