Ripe bananas are best because they become sweeter. They can have completely black skins and be perfect for this bread.

      Come on over….banana bread is one our families favorites. Since the boys are out on their own, when I make some I usually make double so I can get 4 loafs – one for the hubs and the other 3 for each of the boys. HaHa! Gotta keep the men fed. Have a great week! Hugs!!!

        Hi Darren,
        The butter is added when the eggs, sugar etc. are added.
        Thanks for letting me know about this oversight in my recipe.
        I have corrected it.
