just delicious banana bread...

i have had some other banana bread recipes that i have really liked, but they all seemed to have things that i didn't just have in my cupboard.  the thing that i love about this one is that it is moist, perfectly simple, oh so tasty & has nothing in it that you wouldn't just have.  so let you bananas go brown & get a baking:)
