Easy Banana Bread Kraft 117

I make banana bread all the time, my mom loved it. She would make it for my dad when we were kids. I’ve used her recipe for years. This year my banana bread is going to have a secret ingredient. Shhh… don’t tell anyone but the secret ingredient is KRAFT MIRACLE WHIP Dressing. Yes I said KRAFT MIRACLE WHIP Dressing. Sounds crazy but it makes the banana bread extra moist. I used this recipe for Banana Bread  that is on on the KRAFT website. It tastes amazing!

I always make different holiday goodies and give them as gifts. There is one elderly gentleman who I make goodies for weekly. He is a patient at the chiropractic office where I work. He is alone and doesn’t get home cooking very often. So each week I bring him food that we have had the week before. For Christmas I am making him a big batch of different goodies. I froze some different homemade soups and packaged the banana bread in individual portions so they can be frozen and taken out one at a time.

I found everything i needed at my local Walmart. I found the KRAFT MIRACLE WHIP Dressing in the Salad Dressing isle.
