My First Banana Bread (recipe)

Banana Bread Recipe Baking Banana Bread

My husband claims to have never tried banana bread before, so on a rainy Halloween I baked my first one for him to try. I love banana bread and always wanted to bake it, but was never able to keep bananas around long enough to mature perfectly. There are a million recipes out there, so I tried a pretty basic one. It didn’t call for walnuts, which was weird. Mine had to—he’s nuts for walnuts!

Easy and so yummy. Nicco loved it, but brought up a good question, ‘when do you eat it?’ So guys, what’s your favorite way to eat it and what time of day?
