This Banana Bread recipe is quite similar to the Banana Muffin I shared previously.  I used the same method of preparation but I baked it in a loaf pan instead.  The texture is so moist, soft and fluffy.  My family really like it.

To be honest, I still don't understand why it is called Banana Bread.  The texture is closer to a cake or muffin and it's not like regular bread at all.
