this was my 1st time making banana bread, and this recipe was perfect... the only thing i changed, was that i used 2tbsps of buttermilk and i split the mixture into two loaf pans...



So moist and delicious- this is going to be my standard banana loaf recipe from now on!



This was plain and was done 25 minutes before the time given. I almost burned it. I'm going to look for a new recipe with more flavor.
