I have to say that if the bread seems dry and dense, chances are you stirred it too much, which is easy to do without even thinking about it. With sweet breads and muffins, you should always jus...

Great recipe! Like others, I also added some spice (vanilla, cinnimon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice). I wanted to make muffins, so I put the batter into a muffin tin sprayed lightly with Pam. ...

This recipe deserves 5 stars because it is quick and easy to prepare and is delicious with or without modifications. It takes about 5-6 regular size bananas to reach the amount listed--if I d...

This is the best banana bread I have ever had, it is so dense and banana-y. I use less banana (still about 2 cups) when I don't have enough, and I use only a half cup of brown sugar, the bananas...
