Sorry, didn't think this was as great as everybody raved about. First of all, it stuck in the greased and floured pans. Secondly, I can taste the butter, but not much other flavor. That could be my bananas, as there were very ripe, but not what I would call OVERripe. I even followed previous reviewers' suggestions and added cinnamon and vanilla. I did substitute part of the baking soda for baking powder to help with it rising a bit. I used the correct size pans (even measured them). The bread did not crown in the middle, as usually happens. It is thoroughly cooked, much darker than most banana bread, but I attribute that to the excessive amount of butter and sugar. It is not burned. After about 45 minutes, I covered it with foil to keep it from browning too much, but it is a nice, rich dark color all the way through. Like I said--way too much butter, the bread itself is greasy, and nothing to rave about. I'm deleting it from the "saved" recipes. Sorry for the ingredients involved (1 LB of butter, 4 EGGS and 2 Cups of sugar) I would expect more.
