my favorite banana bread

My husband has been bugging me to make banana bread. It is one of his favorite things. He actually has been complaining because I have been making zucchini bread lately. For two reasons, I haven't had any bananas to make banana bread with because they have all been eaten, and I have bags and bags and more bags of zucchini in the freezer from our garden. (I won't be planting zucchini this year) So if anyone has a good recipe for shredded zucchini they would like to share, it would be fun to try something other than zucchini bread with it. Anyways, back to the banana bread. I have to say that I have quite the banana bread skills, everytime I make this bread it just gets better, tonights is definitely the best, I think it may be because I beat the eggs in a little longer than usual. So it's now past midnight and I just finished eating my third piece of bread, is that bad to admit? Oh well, it's delish, and what is better than a warm piece of banana bread that the top crust is a little bit crunchy because it hasn't had time to absorb the moisture from the bread yet? Nothing I say! So here is the recipe, it came from
The Lion House cookbook, it is our families favorite, it always gets gobbled up!
