Grandmas Banana Bread

Baking has always been something that I have loved to do. Over the years, I have made multitudes of cookies, cakes and other items. However, there’s just something about making a family recipe that gives you comfort. My grandma has been baking for as long as I can remember! She’s famous for just about anything she bakes. (Except chocolate chip cookies! More like chocolate chip rocks! haha!)

One of my favorites has always been Grandma’s banana bread! A few years ago around Christmas I called my mom to ask her for the recipe. I wanted to send it to Grandma as her Christmas gift. My mom thought that was a wonderful idea so she managed to get Grandmas recipe for me. It was quite an accomplishment. She said she had to make like a ninja borrowing her recipe books! Haha! I can see my mom sneaking around getting the recipe!
