Mamaw’s Banana Bread

Whenever I have guest over for the weekend what is going to be served at meal time is always a big deal.  Between all the planning and cooking it is nice to have breakfast foods that can be made ahead than set out to enjoy with coffee.  While this banana bread is not the healthy version, it is my grandmothers version, which means it is absolutely delicious.
