Banana bread. It is one of the most loved recipes in my book. (Note the crusty stains on the page.) It's a comfort food that freezes well and translates to funerals, housewarmings, potluck suppers, and baby showers with ease.
Isn't the bowl pretty? I have an intense love of all things Monroe Salt Works, and this bowl was a gift from my friend Anne. She came for a visit, and we spent a rainy afternoon in the Old Port where she bought me this beautiful present.
(We also spent a rainy afternoon in London once, but that is a story for another recipe.)
Then pour into a greased pan. I used Pam, but I'm not sure that was an option for Marjorie Standish. (Fun fact: aerosal oil sprays were patented in 1957.) As a little girl, I would grease pans with the back side of the margarine stick paper-or the actual margarine stick itself.
