I hate to go against all of the positive reviews but, unfortunately, I didn't enjoy this recipe. I went according to the recipe except for a few adjustments suggested by others. I used butter instead of shortening and I added 1 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and cinnamon each. I used white sugar for the full amount instead of part brown, part white. I also used four very ripe bananas. Unlike a lot of people I thought it needed more sugar. It tasted bland and doughy. As soon as it hit my mouth it turned into a huge ball of dough. My husband, who also loves banana bread, thought it was doughy as well. I had to cook it longer than the recommended time which ended up being an hour and 25 mins; it wasn't done at the recommended time. I thought about making it again with a few alterations but I don't think I will. My husband's co-worker's banana nut bread tasted a lot better. I'll be using her recipe next time.
