Grandmother's Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Hand written recipe from Grandmother, I think I'll frame it.

Everyone thinks that their grandmother's food is the best, am I right? 

Well, I'm pretty sure Grandmother makes the best banana nut bread along with other things! I tried several recipes on Pinterest, and while they were good, they were not near as good as hers. So I asked Grandmother this past summer for her recipe and I finally had some bad bananas to make it! (We love and eat our bananas fast in this household!) I ate a few crumbs of the finished product and it was good! I figured it would be bad to majorly cheat on a Monday, so I sliced it up and got it ready for Jaime to take to work. I burnt the top because I was cooking dinner too and forgot to check on it. But other than the dark crispy top, Jaime said it was delicious!

This picture was taken before Christmas this past year. All the orginal Ayres granddaughters and two of our aunts got together and made Christmas candy with Grandmother. It was a special memory we'll always have. Plus I thought you'd like to see the master mind behind this recipe. 

Enjoy the banana nut bread and spend more time with your grandparents, you'll never regret it.
