very ripe bananas
I went looking for a new banana bread recipe for a change from what I usually make. I was hoping that I could find one that I could add diced pears to, as I couldn't find a Pear/Banana Bread recipe. This was the one. What I did was half the amount of the bananas and add a can of drained, diced pears. I also used pumpkin pie spice instead of using the different spices called for in this recipe. Yum. This impressed my husband, who normally dosen't care for banana bread. I'll for sure be making this again. Thanks for posting the recipe.
Way too much clove. I guess I like traditional banana bread better. Save the spice for pumpkin or zucchini.
So yummy! Not a strong banana taste, which I liked. I added some brown sugar in with the white sugar to make 1 cup. If I had had enough, I would have used all brown sugar.
I also made only 1 loaf and then put the remaining batter into mini bunt pans. Baked at the same time. Bunt muffins were done in about 23 minutes.
This was pretty good. I was out of brown sugar so I chose this recipe since it just used white sugar. The spices add a really nice flavor and the smell was fantastic while it was baking. I made one small pan and 6 good sized muffins. Next time I will add some walnuts to the batter since we like it with nuts. In my husband's words: "Hey, that's not too bad at all!" Thanks!!! :)
I've been looking for a great banana bread recipe that includes spices like cinnamon and nutmeg because so many out there don't have them. This was an awesome recipe! I don't have a loaf pan for some reason (I need to go buy one!), but I did as another reviewer suggested and just used a 2-quart square baking dish. Perfect!! I only had 3 bananas, but I thought it still turned out phenomenal. Also, I did as a couple other reviewers suggested and did 1/2 sugar and 1/2 brown sugar. I will be making this again and again!
I used five bananas because I had them and didn't use cloves because I didn't. Used a mixture of brown and white sugars. My loaves were done in 37 minutes.
This banana bread was great! The spices add a nice flavor, different from the standard b-bread. I put the batter in one pan and baked for a little longer. I also added 1 cup of walnuts to the mix. Tasty!
I did make it half brown sugar, half white sugar. But I'm sure it would have been delicious either way. This is the perfect banana bread!
