Very good. I added 1 tsp. of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. of nutmeg. Next time maybe will add some walnuts.

I have made this numerous times now it is amazing,I add a 1/2 cup of apple sauce it makes it a little more moist!

OMG, this has to be the best banana bread ever. The only difference in the recipe I adjusted was I added walnuts. If you like banana bread you have to try this.

Try Black Walnuts for a one of a kind taste, they are a little pricey but well worth the flavor. Also try roasting English Walnuts in an 350* oven just until they become fragrant, about 10-12 minutes. Pecans are also very good. this recipe is very close to one I got from my Grandmother 50 years ago.

I searched for years till I found a banana bread recipe that tasted like bananas and finely found one close enough then tweaked it to perfection. This recipe is very close to mine. I use 7 roasted bananas for two 9x5 pans. Roasted Bananas: Lay unpeeled bananas on foil covered baking sheet. Bake @ 350 degrees about 20 min.or more. The skins will turn black and the flesh part will be soft to touch. Cool then open peel and use bananas in recipe. When bananas are on sale I stock up then roast them and freeze flesh part in plastic containers labeled with the number of bananas inside. Thaw and use when needed.

I made this for company yesterday. It was so good. Everyone asked for the recipe. I'm going to add crushed walnuts next time. Thanks!

Excellent taste and very moist

Always disappointed with my banana bread I tried this recipe. MY NEW FAVORITE!

Love it!

the amish banana bread is so good.

I have been trying to find the best banana bread, and this looks so good. I am going to try this recipe today!!! Thanks Mr Food. we will miss you and your humor!!

bery good

Wonder if this could be used as a zuchini bread recipe? And adding walnuts would also be a treat

one of the best and easiest banana breads i have had and made. Wonderful will be making it again soon!!!!!!!

This is my recipe too except I use a stick of butter instead of oil. Yes, I know fat fat fat but if Im gonna eat banana bread I want the GOOD stuff! I also add cinnamon, raisins and occasionally pecans... Awesome.

add 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 cup raisins and 1/2 walnuts and yummy! I used virgin olive oil instead of veg. oil. or you could also use 1/2 c. apple sauce. Both are healthier substitutes. Less fats & calories.

I don't see anything unusual about this banana bread. I put chocolate chips in mine.

No one said it was unusual. Just a nice recipe

I made this bread , it is very moist and great for breakfast, Coralee

How long would you bake this if you wanted to put them in cupcake papers.

Not really sure. I sort of imagine until they are golden on top, and when you insert a tooth pick in the center it comes out clean. Good idea making them into individual little cakes.

Thats a good idea and then make some creamcheese icing for on top. Yummy!

My son's recipe is simular, but, he adds a scant teaspoon of fresh grated ginger..........marvelous!

The addition of the ginger sounds wonderful! I'm going to try it the next time I make banana bread. Thank You for the great idea!!!!

terrific!! my kids loved it.
