Good morning sister. Its Tuesday with Janelle. I am SO excited about this recipe because we do things for our teachers at school all the time and having easy, yummy recipes like this one, always makes for a great ask for it again treat.
One of the most best things about Janelle recipes is they are EASY & YUMMY. When I am asked to cook for our school staff I go straight to Janelle to get all my recipes because I know for one they will be a hit and they dont take up too much time. 
Janelle blogs over at Comfy in the Kitchen  and has SO many recipes for any occasion. Today she will be sharing with us “Best Ever Banana Bread”. All I can say here is YUMMY and I can not wait to try this one.

When you get a moment stop on over to Janelle Blog and let her know I sent you. Every Friday she has a link up called Feasting in Fellowship Fridays!

Best Banana Bread

I love “perfecting” recipes. Some of you may already know about the many times I have made and tweaked chocolate chip cookies in order to find out the “Master Recipe. Low and behold…here is my tried- and- true Banana Bread recipe. You are going to LOVE how moist this is. My dad was just in town visiting and this is one of his favorite desserts. I had coffee brewing and just took this bread out of the oven when they came in for a visit. His wife commented on how good it smelled as soon as she walked through the door. The children were caught sneaking an extra piece…hehehe. I pray that you and your family can have fond memories over banana bread and coffee too… save this recipe girls, it’s a winner! Love to you, Janelle
