very ripe bananas, mashed
Superb. Like others, I always sprinkle brown sugar on top. One thing I'd note to anyone making a banana bread for the first time: Trust your instincts! Bananas vary, so if yours aren't very sweet, add more sugar. If yours are especially moist, add a bit of extra flour (the finished dough should be like a thick muffin batter). This recipe is forgiving enough to work even without these alterations, but a sense of adventure really helps take it up a notch.
This recipe's instructions tells you to alternately mix milk and flour mixture. The ingredients do not list milk. Please let us know.
For probably 40 years I have made a banana bread with a recipe I got from a wonderful home ec teacher which included sour cream. Since I didn't have sour cream, I made this recipe. This is good, but more cake-like...not nearly as rich or dense as my old favorite banana bread which I will continue to make. The sour cream must be what makes the difference!
Absolutely delicious! It was my first banana nut bread, and it was easy and turned out perfect. I used three bananas and about 1 1/2 cups walnuts, and I had to bake it a little longer, about 1hour and 20 minutes.
I will definitely make this again! Big plus: no need for fancy ingredients, I could make it with what I had at home.
I would suggest only three bananas other wise this is excellant, to many bananas makes it hard to get done, and falls apart very easily, but flavor was excellant.
Excellent flavor and easy to make. I added 1/3 cup of sour cream for added moisture and then topped the bread with vanilla frosting. Yum Yum!
I previously reviewed this recipe and gave it 4 1/2 stars, very yummy. My whole family loves this bread. I just made it again for the first time since we moved to CO. I was worried about the altitude, so I added about 1/4 c. flour and made no other changes, except to sprinkle about 2 TBSP brown sugar on the top before baking. It turned out wonderful! Only had to bake for 50 mins. My son could not keep his hands off! So good!!!
Very moist and cake-like. It made my whole house smell delicious! I will make this recipe again and again. The brown sugar gave it a tasty crust. I took the advice of other reviewers and only used 3 large bananas and one whole cup of nuts (I used pecans).
