Hello! I was looking for a good banana nut bread recipe to make to give as Christmas gifts along with a Yankee Banana Nut Bread candle. This recipe is fantastic. The bread is wonderful and is very attractive to wrap in cellophane and give in a gift bag. I tweeked the recipe a little, at the suggestion of some other readers. I used 1 1/2 cup of RIPE bananas. I also added 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the batter. As a finishing touch, I mixed a tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of sugar and about 1/4 cup of oatmeal flakes and then sprinkled them on the top. It is delicious and moist!
I'm only giving this 3 stars because I followed the recipe and it turned out very dry. However, the taste was still delicious. I will try it again using more bananas and perhaps cutting down on the flour a bit.
Really good, classic banana nut bread taste. Use lots of extra banana, especially if you are generous with the nuts - they seem to cut a little of the banana-ness from the flavor (I doubled the recipe and poured the first loaf without nuts before adding them to the batter for the second loaf. The no-nut version, although the very same batter, was much more banana-ier!). I also followed the suggestion of an earlier reviewer and sprinkled the batter with extra oatmeal before baking - what a pretty touch! We will definitely use this recipe again.
I had some left-over banana's from Christmas and wanted to try a new recipe. My old recipe turned out a dense, drier type of loaf that usually ended up too brown and too crumbly. I surfed onto this recipe and gave it a shot. WOW! This is an awesome bread! I love the texture as well as the taste. The addition of the oats is a big plus too. I added a bit (1/4 tsp.) of cinnamon to my batter, and topped it with a brown sugar/oats/cinnamon struesel type of topping. It turned out great, and I am making another loaf in the morning! I would highly recommend this recipe to anyone. It is quick, easy, and sensational. Thanks for the recipe and God bless!
great recipe! I used fat-free vanilla yogurt for half the shortening and it turned out fantastic.
Very good banana nut bread with the added twist of oatmeal. I think I baked it too long this time because it turned out a bit dry, but moistness actually improved as bread sat.
I made this last week for my church group, served it with honey butter and there wasn't a crumb left!
Very good! I lowered it a star because there were no spices. I added 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp cloves. I also substituted butter for the shortening. I believe I used 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar too. I used 4 brown/black bananas which were more than the 1 cup banana called for. I added twice the nuts (a full 1 cup). I took the suggestion of some and turned the oven down to 325*F. I made muffins and after 23 minutes they were perfect! I also used the topping another reviewer suggested: 1/8 cup oats, 1 tbsp brown sugar, and 1 tsp cinnamon. They were soo pretty with the oats on top! Thank you!
