Got ripe bananas? Time to make this delectable treat..

Haven't all of us faced the dilemma of pondering over what to do with those over ripe bananas. What if i tell you that there is a way around this. I have tried banana bread from several bakeries. Some are good , but most of them where just a tea bread with little bit of banana flour. Once you try this recipe, you will change your vision about banana bread. This banana bread is an explosion of flavors like ripe bananas, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. My friends and family loves this easy to make goodness. No wonder its my daughters favorite lunch box treat.
