"My sister gave me this recipe. It is so decadently rich and wonderful and especially nice toasted and spread with a little salty butter, or even cream cheese."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, nutmeg, allspice and salt. Blend the flour mixture into the butter and egg mixture a bit at a time, beating well after each addition.. Stir in the banana and vanilla; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 90 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool the cake in the pan for 10 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Oh wow! What a change from the banana breads I'm used to. I could never make toast with other banana breads, but this was so good for breaky with peanut butter. I am taking this to all my pot...

Hooray! This is the banana bread recipe I've been looking for. Moist, with a good banana flavor, no nuts, and a great texture. I tried toasting it, too, and it works really well.

This bread is really very very good. Totally YUMMY! In fact, I will probably call this my all time favorite banana bread! The texture is more fine than most quick breads. In fact, this has more ...

Way too egg-y bread. The texture and taste were very disappointing. I would not recommend this or make it again.

It sure is different. I always hated those fluffy, dry loaves with lumps of nuts in hotel breakfast buffets. This one isn't like that. It's moist and really good. I tried it with cream chees...

I accidentally overbaked this bread, so although I thought it was quite good and everyone liked it, I'm going to have to make it again to give it a good trial. I think perhaps it has one egg to...

I am not much of a baker but this recipe makes me want to try more baking. The bread turned out great and a good snack for my 20 month old. I might add a little white sugar next time. I like ...
