South African Banana Bread

This recipe belongs to my dear Mother, not sure who she inherited it from, but it's the best Banana Bread Recipe I have ever come across. Don't be tempted to add more bananas as I find it makes the bread too heavy and so it sinks once you take it out the oven. Why fix what isn't broken right! Stick to this recipe and you'll enjoy sweet success mmmmmmm......
Note: I make mine Dairy and Wheat/Gluten free, so I've added Dairy Free and Wheat Free notes for those with allergies
