Review update - after making many batches of this wonderful bread, I finally think I figured out where the "dry" reviews are coming from. The bananas I used before were quite large. The bananas this time were not as big and I only had the 3. The batter turned out much stiffer than usual and I got a very dry loaf. So use BIG bananas, or add extra if you have smaller bananas. I guess a cup amount would be more accurate.

This recipe was delicious and quite easy to make, as promised. I used 2 eggs instead of 1, and added a tsp. of vanilla, but this was probably the moistest banana bread, and the slightly crisp outer crust was wonderful.

Excellent! I added a handful of brown sugar (a trick my mom taught me for color and a nice crunch to the crust) and a dash of milk to thin it out a little.
