This looks so scrumptious! Moist and delicious with the cream cheese frosting! Yummy!
I love this! I think it is the frosting that sends this recipe over the top. I have eaten so much banana bread without frosting that I have forgotten how absolutely delicious it is with it! This is a great recipe. Thanks for sharing. I am saving this one.
My husband loves Banana Bread but since he’s diabetic I don’t make it much any more. However, for New Years I’m thinking I’ll make him a mini loaf just for him!
Banana bread is the best. I love the buttermilk you put in it. I’ve got some bananas in my freezer…
