It’ll keep for more than a week in your ice box and will be a tasty, little something to offer your friends when they stop by to visit. But, I’m warning you, when your neighbors get a waft of this delicious banana bread bakin’ in your oven, you’d better put on a fresh pot of coffee for all those folks that just happen to drop by!
