3 1/2 cups
very ripe bananas, mashed
This recipe is super moist and has great banana taste. To add more flavor to all my banana bread recipes, I add 1-2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice with the dry ingredients. As a great topping I also mix up 1/4 c. oatmeal, 1/4 c. soft butter, 1 tsp. cinn. and 1/4 c. brown sugar and crumble on top of the recipe before cooking. The topping adds an extra touch and always gets a compliment. Like the other comment, I only use this recipe in loaf pans.
Wasn't crazy about this one; I added more bananas and maybe that is what happened. Will stick with my basic recipe.
This is the best banana bread I have ever had. I made it and took it to work everyone wanted the recipe. Freezes really well too, though you probably won't have any left to freeze!
This is the ultimate banana bread recipe! I make it for all different groups of people and everyone loves it! I modify the recipe slightly, though, by using 2 loaf pans instead of a 9x13. Temperature and cook time stay the same. My favorite part about this recipe? It always comes out perfect!
This bread is AWESOME!! My kids (7 & 3) made this yesterday. Used the 9 x 13 pan as suggested and 1/2 of it gone already! I only made 1/2 the batter and did not have buttermilk but substituted 1cup milk and 1tbs vinegar (stirred and let sit for 10min) then used what was needed for the recipe. So moist and full of banana flavor!! This is a keeper!! Thanks
great way to use up black bananas and buttermilk. Subbed the oleo for 3/4 cup applesauce and it was super moist. Did up the salt to 1/2 tsp. and cut the sugar down to 2 1/2 cups and it was plenty sweet. Added 1 tsp. cinnamon to enhance the flavor. Thanks for a great recipe that can be made into a lowfat bread without compromise of flavor or texture! This made 2 loaves and 2 mini loaves.
Perfectly moist wonderful bread have made 4 batches since Thanksgiving! I do add 1 teaspoon nutmeg 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves as well as a cup or two of chopped pecans and bake in bundt pan for an hour. Also I did not have any buttermilk so used regular whole milk in place. This is the best snack and all that have tasted the souped up recipe rave about. Thanks a keeper for sure!
I've made this one many times and it always turns out great. It's the best tasting recipe for banana bread!! I've also had to substitute regular milk for the buttermilk since I don't always have it on hand.
