I found this bread to be an unnecessarily expensive banana bread, using buttermilk ,and a stick of butter. To top it off, I could taste the buttermilk, and I thought it detracted from the taste...

It is good--especially when smothered with butter after toasting it. My bananas ended up at 1 1/2 cups mashed. I followed the recipe as written, and it was done after only 47 minutes for me. ...

I hadn’t too many bananas so I did the recipe and half (I added a half of all ingredients to what it already called for). I also added about 1 tablespoon of vanilla and 1 tablespoon of allspice....
