I've made this recipe many, many times. It's absolutely delicious as stated. However, don't even bother making it (or any other banana bread) if your bananas aren't super ripe. It makes the bread extremely bland. I know, because I rushed things at Christmas and ended up with a dozen bland little mini-loaves. (By the way, this recipe makes 4 mini loaves.) Also, the margarine is a good idea, as it keeps the bread more moist than butter would, so don't substitute. I've tried making this bread with 1/2 brown sugar, but found that the difference in flavor (as long as the bananas are ripe) did not warrant the additional measuring. This recipe is so good, and so easy, that I have memorized it from making it so many times. =) It makes me feel like a grandma with a special heirloom recipe that no one would believe is actually really easy!
