Traditional banana bread baked in a square pan and sprinkled with sugar to create a crunchy topping on this baked banana treat.

This is, without a doubt, the best banana bread/cake recipe I have ever baked!

The secret is that it's baked in a 9-inch square pan and sprinkled with sugar before baking, which gives it a crunchy topping.

Love this recipe.   It's a keeper.  I'm on my third cake in 2 weeks!

This recipe needs to be made with very ripe bananas, so you may have to wait several days for newly purchased bananas to ripen.
