This loaf was gone before I knew it. It was moist, had a nice texture, and a delicious banana flavor. I'll be making this again!

Wow! This is the lightest, moistest, yummiest recipe ever! It was fast prep and fast bake. I used a Bundt pan and a countertop oven and it was done in 45 minutes. It looked so much like the original photo that I submitted my image of it. Deeelicious! Makin' muffins next time...ooohh!

Sorry, but my bf & I didn't enjoy it. We thought it was dry & lacked banana flavour. After we tried it, I actually double checked the ingredients 'cuz I thought maybe I had missed something. But I didn't. I guess I'll just have to keep searching for that perfect banana bread recipe.
