I make banana bread often. It smells so good when it's baking and it is such a joy to have a warm bite after it's taken out of the oven. My bread is made from a mix that comes out of a box. I know, I feel like a cheater. But, I always throw in a couple of browning bananas that I mash up and it makes such a difference. The bread is so moist and you have the chunks of real banana in there and you can't even tell that there was a box involved.
