this bread was wonderfully moist! i totallly changed a couple things in the recipe, i used 1 cup brown sugar instead of white sugar,, i used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour and i added a tsp and a half of vanilla... so the bread was browner... it was very moist and i ate half the loaf before it cooled!



This is the best banana bread recipe I've ever made. I tried it because it looked quick - and called for 3 ripe bananas which I needed to get rid of. I left the walnuts out and substituted vanilla chips. I also added a teaspoon of Vanilla.



Had mixed success with this one. I used only brown sugar in the amount indicated, and that might be the problem. Wife suggested needs to be sweeter, stick with white sugar (however, note that in many reviews of this dish a ½ brown and white sugar mix is used and suggested). Also we don't use nuts because my son can have a non-tolerant reaction to them. But he didn't even finish his first slice. Wife thinks there's too much backing powder, "I can taste it try cutting it in half". I didn't even know baking powder had a taste. I still don't. Wife did say something that hints on were to go with this. She noted that, "...muffin-like breads like this loaf can be tricky". As you make this dish, try keeping that hint in mind. For example are raisins a good addition? And any tricks you have to help keep a muffin from becoming a heavy blob, they might need to be put in play here. I've given the dish a 4 star because I do like it. But, again, it's trickier than a rooky baker might want to take on. And that's just my story, "Rooky baker takes on more than family can chew".
