Nana’s Banana Bread

 photo nanasbananabread_zpsfd256fd3.pngThough I’m not a fan of bananas or banana bread, my husband loves his Nana’s banana bread recipe. This summer, when we had some bananas that were ripe enough, we baked a loaf. It wasn’t gluten free, so I didn’t try it, but my husband, Cara, and her husband all approved.
