      Banana bread is very good. I personally like it warmed with butter on it. Or you can eat it plain! Sometimes it can be a little sweet but that can be changed by just adding less sugar that the recipe calls for!

      i have never tried a banana bread. The only one which I have ever tried is orange sweet potatoes bread. I will try this one and compare the two.
