Banana bread is a great way to use up over-ripe bananas or even to use up bananas before they reach that state. It isn’t often in our family that bananas get like that but when they do I like to pop them in the freezer until I have enough to make a nice loaf for my family to enjoy. This recipe is seriously simple and you can’t go wrong with that! It is super delicious warm and smothered in butter. Yum!
