Easy Banana Bread Recipe

One of my all time favorite baked goods is banana bread. If you have a few bananas ripping on your counter and want something super tasty for the family you will want to try out this recipe. It is one that I have had on hand for years! It was one of those passed on recipes. I have adapted it a bit to my own liking as I cut back the sugar and add more bananas plus a splash more of pure vanilla. YUM! I have also made it with maple and almond extract. You can add walnuts, pecans, raisins or chocolate chips. We have also made it with adding Strawberries in the summer.
