Aunt Carol’s banana bread

This is another of my Aunt Carol’s recipes (Thank you again Becky)  She was such a great cook.  This one I did make a couple of changes and updated the recipe. This is a very dense bread so you might need to add more liquid.   I don’t have margarine which was the oil of choice back in the day.  I also added a little cinnamon, because I like it.  Hope you like it too.
