Waka, waka ... is this bread fantastic!! This is definitely going to be my go-to recipe for banana bread from now on. I did tweak it according to one reviewer's suggestions: used softened instead of melted butter; used 1-3/4 cups flour; added 1 tsp lemon juice; added 1 tsp baking powder; mashed bananas instead of sliced. I know this sounds like a lot of tweaking, but it's just basic stuff. I'm quite sure the recipe would be exceptional as-is (except I would definitely mash the bananas, not slice the buggers). Ooh, one note. When I baked it for the 1 hour, when I checked on it the bread seemed to be overbaked; it was quite brown and almost smelled burnt. However, once it cooled and it came time to eat it, I discovered that this is the perfect time to bake it, since it gave it a very nice crust. I know sometimes the top of banana bread can be almost mushy, but this one turned out perfect at the 1 hour baking time.
