i just love this recipe because all of the spices and the zest compliment the banana flavor in a way i never would have thought of. it's so unique and so tasty. i usually substitute low-fat plain yogurt for about half or a little less than half of the butter with great results, too.
Very tasty! This recipe's a keeper. Nice texture and nice combination of flavors. I used pumpkin pie spice (only thing I had on hand) and added some choc chips. Next time, will try some of the other variations suggested by other reviewers.
Beautiful presentation. Had some nuts left over from another recipe and a couple of dying bananas just screaming to be made into a banana bread. I didn't have as much banana as the recipe called for so I added some applesauce to make up the difference. I did not use the lemon zest as I didn't have any but would definitely do so next time. I think this would also be a great base for other types of quick bread. Thanks for posting.
This banana bread turned out great! The outside is nicely crusted with a soft tender inside. I omitted the nuts and added mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, a nice variation.Thanks for the good base recipe!
So very excellent. I don't even care for baked goods most times but this bread is easy to make, turns out as pretty as a picture each time and tastes wonderful. Thanks again.
Love this!! Best banana bread recipe. Hate the overly oily kind normally found, this was perfect. I did switch pecans for the almonds though and used fresh ground spices to optimize the flavors.
Really good banana bread! I didn't use the lemon zest and used only 2 bananas so it wouldn't have an overwhelming banana taste. Even my picky daughter loved it!
Loved this recipe! The spices give a wonderful flavor and the texture delightful. I didn't have the almonds this time but will when I make this for the holidays.
The zest gives an extra flavor that makes this bread special. I didn't have any ginger so next time I will add that. I used lime instead of lemon because I have lime trees and am always needing to find ways to use them. I also had some walnuts so used that in place of the almonds but it was still great. Thanks for sharing.
I make this all the time. I think my family puropsfully waits for the bananas to start turning so that I have to make it. Anyone who has had it loves this banana bread. Thank you for sharing the recepe.
