Sweet Loaves

Here are two yummy sweet bread recipes that I love to make!
This is my kind of breakfast!!!
My Grandmother always made the Apple Bread around Christmas time and I loved it. It's a good bread to make and give as a gift and wonderful to slice and smother with warm butter on Christmas morning. I like to use the Banana Recipe anytime I have really ripe bananas that need to be used up.

Mix these in a seperate bowl and then add contents of first bowl & stir well.
Bake in greased loaf pans for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
