So good! Easy to make, too. I doubled the recipe and used half brown and regular sugar. Made one large and three small loaves (I'll take as hostess gifts). This will be my only go-to recipe for banana bread!

Easy as pie to make and very tasty. The texture was on the dry side compared with some banana breads I've had, but that could have been due to any number of things. Followed the suggestion to wrap and refrigerate overnight then sliced and nuked on low for 20 secs to warm up. SERVED with low fat whipped topping and sprinkled A little chopped walnuts on top for garnish. My very picky husband complemented the baker so I'll be making it again soon.

Using half brown and half white sugar gives banana bread a definite lift. I love this recipe, though, even if my "change" is not incorporated into the recipe.

I love making banana bread. I like to add a cup of yogurt to mine. Maybe in place of the butter. You can use either plain or a fruit one. Also my mom likes to add a can of minced pineapple to hers. Also very yummy. Sometimes i will make my BB into muffins instead and add a maple frosting to it.

I left out the butter and added more bananas plus poppy seeds, sunflower seeds, and flax seeds, and less sugar for a healthier alternative. Big hit with the family!

Very easy and yummy recipe. The kids had fun making it and everyone enjoyed eating it. Made a batch with pecans, which was a nice addition.

i accidentally added at least 1/4 cup more of sugar, i thought it was screwed but then i think quickly by adding 1/4 more of butter and lots of dried raisens and cranberries....voila, they outcome was perfect, moist and i also sprinkle oaks on top before baking it!!!!

This recipe turned out PERFECT! My husband can't get enough of this. The bread was moist and flavorful. One time I added 2.5 bananas... and it still turned out wonderful.

I have made this twice now, it was a huge hit with my family! It is so good, not difficult to make and tastes fabulous! I definitely recommend making this bread!!

I made a double recipe and baked it in 9x13 glass dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. I had five bananas that I needed to use, so I used only 3 eggs and also skimped a little on the sugar (I used about 1 c). It baked perfectly in 55 minutes and it was outstanding! I will be making this regularly from now on.

So easy to make, this bread is moist, delicious and keeps well for at least a week in an airtight container.
