This is a wonderful banana bread. I did not have any flax seed meal, so made my own by putting flax seeds in the food processor. Also added 2 teaspoons of banana extract. BUT there must be an error in the bake time, wondering whether this is a publishing error as after 25 minutes like the recipe states my cake was still total goo! Had to cook for a total for 65 minutes.

Great recipe and super easy. I baked mine in my bread machine using the quick breads setting and it came out beautifully. This is now my official "go to" banana bread recipe.
