Lion House Banana Bread

By Krista Low @kristascookin
I have tried and made many different Banana breads and I always seem to come back to this recipe.  My husband gets irritated when I make a different one because, "Why try something new when you have a recipe that works?" So, to use up some very ripe bananas I had sitting on my counter I pulled out this classic and baked for him.
