“My Nanna Towgood has been making this loaf bread for over 40 years, and its a family favorite --- moist, flavorful, and just the right amount of sweetness. You may substitute chocolate chips for the walnuts if you desire.”

UPDATE: 12/18/11 This is my go-to banana bread recipe. it is always super moist without being gummy, and is always a great way to use up buttermilk and those dark bananas. the darker the banana, the bigger the flavor. perfect recipe when wanting to use up bananas and buttermilk. The flavor and texture were superb. I added 1 extra banana, replaced applesauce for the oil, and 1/2 tsp. salt. They were wonderfully moist with a great banana flavor. I think 3 bananas is the way to go...most recipes call for 3 ripe ones. I didn't have nuts or choc. chips but had butterscotch chips. Oh wow! These really made the recipe. The combination of flavors was great. 1 tsp. of cinnamon is just enough to add a layer of enhances the bananas and does not overpower. Because the batter is nice and thick, nuts or chips won't sink to the bottom. Came out beautifully golden brown. Made these into muffins and made 18.



This was an excellent recipe. The cinnamon really added extra flavor. I used 3 large bananas for more banana flavor and used 1/4 tsp of salt. This bread did not last long!!



I added 4 bananas instead of two and also included 1/2 tsp of cardamom. This by far, was the best banana bread I have ever made!! It came out quite moist and just oozing with goodness!!
