Banana Bread

Barb London, Print Media Supervisor

A coworker of mine who cooked and experimented with recipes would always bring in her experiments and want feedback on the recipes. I liked the test product enough to ask for the recipe and have been making it since. The simplicity of the recipe and ingredients just made it so easy to make on a regular schedule.

  • 2 eggs
  • 1¾ cup unsifted flour
  • 1¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup honey
