This is the first thing I ever learned to bake. I think I was about 7 when I started cooking. . This Banana Nut Bread recipe is an old family recipe that I got from my mom. It makes 1 big load or 2 small ones. It is better the next day than the day it is baked. Wrap in foil if you can wait that long.
