"My sister gave me this recipe. It is so decadently rich and wonderful and especially nice toasted and spread with a little salty butter, or even cream cheese." — Mama_B

Don't confuse it with those fluffy banana breads you're used to. This one has a nice, dense texture and slices and freezes well. It doesn't need nuts, which is nice for a change. I would make this one again. It's perfect for a brunch buffet table, and the kids love it. Tried it with a bit of cinnamon honey and salty butter. That was really wonderful.
I was very disappointed with this recipe. I followed the directions to the letter. The texture was not heavy (or "rich") like I thought it would be, and actually turned out lighter than other recipes I made (from this site) the same day. I was also not fond of the prominent egg flavor, and the bread was not as sweet as other banana bread recipes I've tried. If you do opt to try this recipe, watch the baking time closely-- mine took no where near 90 minutes to bake. The ingredient list made me think this would be a great bread, but it is not a recipe I will make again.
Oh wow! What a change from the banana breads I'm used to. I could never make toast with other banana breads, but this was so good for breaky with peanut butter. I am taking this to all my pot lucks and gatherings!
Hooray! This is the banana bread recipe I've been looking for. Moist, with a good banana flavor, no nuts, and a great texture. I tried toasting it, too, and it works really well.
It sure is different. I always hated those fluffy, dry loaves with lumps of nuts in hotel breakfast buffets. This one isn't like that. It's moist and really good. I tried it with cream cheese like the person who posted it said. That was great.
Way too egg-y bread. The texture and taste were very disappointing. I would not recommend this or make it again.
This bread is really very very good. Totally YUMMY! In fact, I will probably call this my all time favorite banana bread! The texture is more fine than most quick breads. In fact, this has more of a light muffin quality about it. It also reminds me of pound cake. Light and refreshing. It makes this more of a spring bread than heavy fall or winter quick bread. Very pleasant indeed! I did do a couple things different. I used 5 eggs and 4 bananas. I'm trying to get rid of 2 bunches. I used cinnamon in place of nutmeg too. And I threw in a handful of raisins. I would also recommend you watch the baking time. Check yours at 70 minutes to be sure. Mine was a little over baked at 80. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
I accidentally overbaked this bread, so although I thought it was quite good and everyone liked it, I'm going to have to make it again to give it a good trial. I think perhaps it has one egg too many.
