ripe bananas, mashed
Wonderful! I actually decided on this recipe since it called for baking powder instead of soda (which I didn't have) I halved the recipe since I cook for one and I definitely don't need a whole loaf lying around =) I did add about 2 T of melted butter to the batter as another reviewer suggested to make it a little more moist and just a dash more baking powder. It just came out a few minutes ago and it's very very yummy, just the right texture, not too heavy or dense! Will definitely make again. (Oh and sidenote....I noticed a Lot of complaints that this bread is too "dense and gummy" I'm wondering if everyone is remembering to use Very Over Ripe bananas? They should be completely brown and practically liquid themselves! If you use bananas that are not ripe enough it won't be a substitute for the liquid (i.e. milk, water) that most recipes have and the bread won't turn out right)
This bread is good when it first comes out of the oven. After that it is much too heavy and dry.
I was surprised at how delicious this bread is. I made two types of bread - one claimed to be low fat, but had butter in it. This one doesn't have any butter and was better than the other one! I highly recommend this recipe.
There isn't an option for anything below a one star. I tried two other recipes that same day, and they were great! This recipe was far too dense, dry and a waste of good bananas & nuts. It never did cook all the way either. Banana Bread I, was such a good recipe, try that instead.
A great way to use ripe bananas.
This is good, dense, very bread like. Travels well
this is one of the best banan breads i ever made. or even had from someone else. good job!
Although this bread is hearty and delicious, I did find it somewhat dry.
I will make it again because it did receive great feedback from friends/family.
