I cut this recipe in half. It calls for more bananas than most recipes and the result is a great banana flavor. I used four medium sized ripe bananas. I also added some pumpkin pie spice and half walnuts, half pecans. It turned out great. The batter seems a little wet, but the result was a moist texture even though I had to bake it the full 75 minutes.
Prep time 20 minutes is a joke. When finished it looked picture perfect but could not even taste the banana's. They were ripe too.
Sorry I love and all receipes.com but this not one I will even think about again. Merry Christmas to those these would have gone to.
With ripe bananas and a desire to try out a new recipe, I decided to give this one a chance. Having made many loaves of banana bread through the years, the ingredients seemed pretty straight forward. The use of a mixer is definitely not needed. This came out fluffy, moist and golden in an hour. The only thing I would do next time is add some cinnamon and nutmeg for flavor and aroma.
I took the other review's advice and added a teaspoon of nutmeg & cinnamon. It was perfection! The batter made 2 dz muffins and a loaf.
Great recipe! This was a big hit for Thanksgiving. So good I had several friends ask me to make this instead of giving them a Christmas present. I followed the recipe to the letter.
This is a great recipe! I love that it has more bananas than you usually see in other recipes. I baked mine in mini loaves to give out at the holidays….I got about 10 out of it (last one was a bit smaller). I am definitely going to use this recipe from now on. The only downfall is all the bowls and dishes I dirtied, but it's worth it for this awesome bread!
I made this recipe last week and my whole family loved it! It was the best banana nut bread I have had! It was moist and yummy! I used 5 ripe bananas and pecans instead of walnuts. I made one large loaf and 4 small loaves to share with friends. I am waiting for my new bananas to ripen so I can make it again!
