"It will cool and then be gone, so be prepared to double the recipe or make more. This is by far the best banana bread I have ever had. The banana bread is better if the bananas are extra ripe!" — Rubicon

1 1/4 cups
very ripe bananas, mashed
2 1/2 cups
unsalted butter, cubed
1 1/2 teaspoons
Very yummy! I cut this recipe in half and made muffins out of it. I had one issue and that was when the recipe was halved, it called for two and a half mashed ripe bananas. I decided to even it up by using three bananas and adding another quarter cup of flour. I made no other changes. I got 12 muffins out of this recipe. 350* for 20 minutes and we were ready to go. Great banana bread with the right measurements of everything needed to make it perfectly.......banana bread-y.
Really nice banana bread and a change to my recipe I've been using for 40 years. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was because of the topping. I found there was way too much of it and was not really necessary at all on such a tasty loaf.
Made this for coworkers and it was gone in a matter of moments they loved it
to heavy, very dense, would cut back on bananas so not so thick and heavy.
Very rich, dense, and moist. A little sweet/rich for my taste and the banana is kind of hidden by the abundance of butter, vanilla, and brown sugar. I did split into two loaves as I was concerned about overflow in just one. Also halved the topping and that was more than enough for two loaves, let alone one.
