Molly Wizenberg is my hero! I’ve never had banana bread this good EVER! It domed perfectly – had a slightly crispy crust and tasted AWESOME! I’m not nearly as poetic as she is about it in her book “A Homemade Life” and I’m not even going to try. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of this book – it’s captivating – she’s thoroughly delightful to read – and it’s all about her life in food, short essays that make you want ot create EVERYTHING she’s written about. This was the first recipe I HAD to try.
