Banana Bread

Sitting on my counter were six overly ripe bananas. Banana Bread sounded so yummy and I knew of some boys in my house that would appreciate it! The problem is, I have never found a recipe that I loved! Over the years, I have tried many recipes....some were too dry, some didn't rise, some were heavy etc. Recently, I had found a vintage church cookbook at a thrift store. There were several different recipes for banana bread. I scanned the recipes and ingredients and thought I would give this one a try.  Jamaican Hilton Banana Bread.
This is the result!
The absolute best banana bread I have ever made. So moist, just the right amount of sweetness, dense yet light and fluffy at the same time. I didn't know about the extract flavorings but I used all of them and it just flavored the bread just perfectly. This is the perfect bread with a cup of hot black tea or coffee. My son has been eating this for breakfast!
Don't you love vintage loaf pans? I found this beautiful photo on Pinterest. They don't make them like this anymore. They remind me of vintage feed grain sacks.
If you try this banana bread recipe let me know if you love it! I hope you do! It will now be the only banana bread recipe that I use!
