In my family, it’s not the holidays without banana bread. Not just any banana bread…..
OUR banana bread
The banana bread that my mom and grammy got the SAME recipe for in junior high home ec. Yup, they got the SAME recipe…and it’s the best one I’ve ever had.
As I’m sure many of you experienced, home ec was cut by the time I made it to middle school and high school. In fact, my freshman Spanish class was in the old home ec room. We LOVED torturing our teacher by putting his precious notebook in the ovens….they disconnected the gas that summer
So now, I use the same recipe. Three generations of banana bread awesomeness!
