Banana Pecan Bread

"I love warm cornbread with my meals. When I make my homemade cornbread I add a heavy dose of white sugar to make it taste like a muffin. But a great substitute for my cornbread is my Banana Pecan Bread. I can eat this bread all day long. Now just because it has bread in the title does not mean you can make a sandwich with it, but you can snack on it all day long. You can eat it with a cold glass of milk, or warm it up and eat it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. "
