Banana Bread Loaf
BANANA BREAD should never be compromised. This recipe assures you with a moist and packed with loads of all-natural banana flavor, with no artificial flavoring, no vanilla into it. I love this BANANA BREAD LOAF when it is lightly toasted to have a light crunch on the outside and so soft and moist inside. The almonds will also give a nice blend of nut and the bread. But it will still taste at its best even without the almonds.
