Recipe Notes

Recipe Notes

  1. You need 2-3 overripe bananas but two is enough.
  2. For one loaf, use the largest loaf pan you have. You can do two smaller loaves and cut the cooking time down some. I much prefer the larger loaf.
  3. You need to get the hang of the toothpick test when testing for done.
  4. I store at room temperature wrapped in plastic wrap covered by aluminum foil. It is good for three days.
