The following Moist Banana Bread Recipe was sent to us by one of our readers. This is a perfect basic banana bread recipe that she claims is the best banana bread. Her mom has made it for years. She also mentioned that this a great recipe for those bananas that turn brown. Not ready to make this banana bread recipe? No problem. Just freeze your brown bananas (don’t worry about a bag, they usually don’t have a freezer burn problem) in the freezer and then thaw out the night before you want to make the bread. Of course, using older bananas like this (the mushy kind) will make the moist banana bread.
