During my bridal shower, long, long ago, which my daughter would call “the olden days”; I was given a box of hand written recipes. One of the recipes was from our family friend Julie Gardner. Julie’s recipe- gift was for banana bread made with Bisquick. I would guess that the recipe came off of a Bisquick box, as it was the 70’s (see, I told you it was the olden days), and these types of tea breads were very popular. The little yellow recipe card is stained and worn now, as I made the bread on a weekly basis during my newlywed years. But, that’s the gold standard indicator of a good recipe, right?
This tea bread is moist and delicious with only seven ingredients (it originally had six, but I added vanilla extract)…pretty cool, huh? Enjoy!
