In my many years in the kitchen, this is by far the best banana bread recipe I have tried, and I have tried many. I always freeze 2 loaves, because they freeze so well. Then in a minutes notice I have something to rely on out of the freezer. Margarine must be one that contains at least 65% vegetable oil.
