Great recipe! I love banana bread and this was no exception! It's also a great way to use up the last of the really ripe bananas. Since I like a sweeter banana bread I added an additional 1/2 cup of brown sugar. I also upped the vanilla to 2 tsp. and added 1 tsp. of cinnamon. Definitely spray your pan with cooking spray so it doesn't stick. I sprinkled the top with additional chopped walnuts before popping it into the oven for about 45 mintues. The bread smelled wonderful and rose very nicely. Absolutely delicious and perfect with a piping hot cup of tea! Read More

All we tasted was baking soda and baking powder....the vanilla and banana couldn't cover the taste of those two bitter things! Read More

I liked this banana bread. It had more of cake texture than that dense texture so many banana breads have. I think I actually liked that better. In the future I may make this in a cake pan and frost it with a lite icing. This is not a very tall banana bread but I was just baking it for my home so it worked fine. ty Read More

Very good moist and easy to make. I was surprised there was no cinnamon or spices but it was good. I subbed pecans since that's all I had and it was great. I might add a little nutmeg next time. Read More

No soda in the recipe. The nuts make a big difference. Read More

I seem to always have over-ripe bananas around that need to be used up and I like to try different banana bread recipes and this one was pretty good. Not the best one that I've ever made but good. It is much lighter in color than the other banana breads that I've made and it was delicious served warm with a slather of butter and a cup of coffee. Yum! Read More

I really really liked this Banana Bread! My house smelled Amazing while this was baking! Its perfectly moist and I Love That it had a nice crust on the outside without being to hard and crunchy lol I enjoyed this with my morning coffee slathered in butter! For me You honestly cant go wrong with this recipe! My only changes were I omitted the nuts (just a personal preference) and added a dash of cinnamon to the batter! Read More
