One of my most favorite memories of Maui is the delicious banana bread we ate a roadside stand during our drive along the famous Road to Hana.
I’ve looked everywhere online (and I’m not the only one, from all the discussion boards I’ve read) and can’t find a recipe that comes close.
The one below is pretty good. In the meantime, I’d love to hear from anyone who has the inside scoop on how to make the real deal!

1 ½ cup Granulated sugar
3 each Egg
1 ¼ cup Oil
1 ¾ cup Flour
