Words can't do this banana bread justice. I followed the receipe exactly, and it turned out unbelievably delicious. Best banana bread I've ever had, and my boyfriend and all the recruits in his police academy agree! Thanks for a fantastic recipe!

YUM! I'm in love with this recipe. It's so easy and delicious! I also used applesauce instead of butter, low fat sour cream, and did 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup all-purpose flour. I thought it turned out great and I'm so happy to have this new twist on banana bread! I was getting tired of my same old recipe. Thanks!

I couldn't decide whether I wanted a quick bread or a coffee cake and this recipe was a perfect choice. I used plain yogurt, put in a bundt pan, and it baked up perfectly (I think it took about 40 minutes). I pressed the walnut mixture down slightly so they would not fall off when baked. The bread slices neatly, has a springy texture, and the topping tastes like it has brown sugar (even if it doesn't). Thanks Leilani, for posting. Roxygirl
