What a faaaabulous recipe. I chose this one because of the little amount of butter required. I opted for the milk instead of the sour cream...can only imagine it´s even better with sour cream (likcing lips). I live in Spain where the flour is different, and I haven´t had the best of luck texture-wise baking mom´s best this and mom´s best that...until today. What can I say, it was everything banana bread should be.

Based on other reviews, I made a bunch of changes. I think it's a great base recipe that you can change to suit your needs. That said, I made the following changes:
- reduced sugar to 1/2 cup
- added 1 tspn vanilla and extra tablespoon of milk to liquids
- added 1/2 tspn cinnamon to flour
- folded in about 1/3 cup of choco chips

This was on the drier side for a quick bread, but is so so tasty! I am very happy with the recipe.
