My Granny was a baker’s baker. I can literally think back to all of the delicious treats that were birthed in her kitchen. Sweet Potato Pie, Caramel Cake, Peach Cobbler, and my favorite, Banana Bread. The goodness. Oh, the goodness. Banana Bread, it’s one of those dishes that I’m hesitant to try by pretty much anyone else other than the members of my family that have it in their recipe arsenal. It reminds me of me of my childhood. Afternoons at my grandparents were always spent with something delicious. This Banana Bread ranks high on the list of desirables. I’m sharing my take on Granny’s Banana Bread. Grab the recipe below.
