Don't throw away those slightly-overripe bananas! Homemade banana bread is one of our favorite treats to have on hand for spontaneous visitors, an on-the-go breakfast, or a special lunchbox snack. This simple traditional banana bread will wow your family and friends with its moist texture and wonderful banana flavor. Topped with a pat of melty butter, this classic banana bread pairs beautifully with a hot mug of coffee or tea. Although we love snacking on this banana bread for breakfast, it can be enjoyed at any time of day, from morning to night. For a decadent dessert, top a slice of warm banana bread with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.Scratch-baked gifts are our favorite way to show our love, and with only fifteen minutes of hands-on time, this banana bread is a quick and easy homemade solution to your gifting woes. Wrapped in wax paper and tied with twine, it's a great hostess gift to bring to parties or potlucks. This fall, we're baking a loaf to gift to each of our neighbors.
