Make Grandma’s Easy and Tasty Banana Bread

This is a very simple and easy banana bread recipe but it is SO good. My mom has been using this recipe for over 40 years and now I’ve turned it over to the third generation. 

In the video, we used a 9×5 Pyrex glass loaf pan because everything else was still in storage.  However, I prefer either metal or stoneware pans for baking quick breads.  Some day, I’d love to try a cast iron loaf pan.

In this video, Ethan walks you through his grandma’s banana bread recipe. The bread appears a bit overdone at the end because he forgot to adjust the baking time for convection. If you have a convection oven, be sure to reduce the baking time accordingly.
