Very Luscious Banana Bread Recipe

I would like to share another banana-based recipe which I got from This is very easy to prepare bread because it does not require a "mixer". One thing that I like about this bread is its a little heavy kind of banana bread with vey delectable luscious moisture...simple a melt in the mouth kind of bread. But one thing that you must remember to get the very moisture result, you must use all black bananas. Another important thing which adds moisture is the sour milk. I never use buttermilk in this recipe. Just add a tablespoonful of vinegar to your regular fresh milk and leave for a while to allow the formation of curdle. This kind of banana bread is ideal as give away during Christmas. Its inexpensive and very easy to prepare.

I have tried a lot of different recipes of banana bread I got from net blogs, but this one I think is the perfect one. You may try this too.
