This was plain and was done 25 minutes before the time given. I almost burned it. I'm going to look for a new recipe with more flavor. Read More

This turned out a lot darker than I've ever seen banana bread turn out -- but it was moist and tasty regardless. I'm just learning to cook/bake on my own and this was easy and fun to try! Read More
