  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 5x9 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the melted butter and maple syrup. Beat in the egg and bananas, leaving a few small chunks. Stir in the maple extract and milk. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and baking powder, and stir into the banana mixture just until moistened. Transfer to the prepared loaf pan. Mix the nuts and sugar, and sprinkle evenly over the batter.
  3. Bake 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.

I think this recipe is absolutely gorgeous! I couldn't find maple extract so i just used Vanilla and it was absolutely fine. Once I even ran out of maple syrup halfway through and so i filled in...

This banana bread recipe is a nice change from the norm. Here in Vermont, we love maple in/on everything, so we particularly like the maple twist. I don't keep maple extract in the house, so I...

Very tasty and moist! I also substituted vanilla for maple extract and lessened the baking soda. I was very pleased.

I couldn't find my loaf pan so I made these into banana muffins. Fill your muffin tins (with liners) only 1/2 way, as they expand! I baked it for about 15 minutes, at the recommended temperature...

I tried this recipe for a different spin on the banana bread I usually bake. What a disappointment! This bread was dry and tasteless. I'll gladly go back to my original banana bread!

This was just OK, I was a little disappointed. It had a strong baking soda taste to it and was very crumbly. I would definitely make some changes to the recipe for next time, including adding mo...
