My Light and Fluffy Banana Bread

My banana bread

I love bananas and I love banana bread. What I don’t love is the dense heavy type of banana bread that I find everywhere I go.  Recently, I baked banana bread and saw that I didn’t have the baking soda necessary for the recipe.  A quick google search taught me that baking powder (at 2-3 parts for each part of baking soda in the recipe) would work fine.  The result was a lovely, light, yellow, fluffy, and moist banana bread.  My most favorite ever.

Eventually, I promise I will get around to writing out my recipe and posting it here.
