My grandmother used to make this. I don't know where the recipe came from, but I love it because it is so moist.

Excellent Bread, but a little too sweet. Using 1 to 1 1/2 cups of sugar would probably do. Very ripe bananas have a very high sugar content, I would say consider adjusting white sugar when mixing.

This is *excellent* banana bread! It is moist w/just the right level of banana flavor & sweetness. My only issue here was the yield as a loaf pan size was not included & a yield of 2-4 loaves seemed like a wide variant to me, esp since I have only 1 loaf pan. BUT then I remembered I had 4 8x4x2.5 in alum loaf pans, decided to make a half recipe using them & got 2 perfect loaves. This makes actual yield 2 loaves using a std size 9x5 loaf pan, 18 servings (assuming 1-in slices) at 255 cal/serving & a more realistic view of the nutritional data (if I have done the math correctly). Cooking time was also not included, but your note saying *pulls away from sides of pan when done* was right on & I tested w/a wooden skewer just to be sure. This is prob more info than you wanted, but I wanted to be sure I was taking a right view of the recipe for the future. I will have all this worked out & be ready to add a 5th * for this yummy recipe when that happens. Thx for sharing it w/us.
