I've been searching for, and baking banana bread recipes in the hope of finding a great recipe. My family was very pleased with the moistness and wonderful banana flavor in your recipe. The bread had a nice peak with just the right color of brown for the crust (I didn't have any trouble with overbrowning as I've had with some recipes). I substituted buttermilk for the milk and lemon juice (needed to finish it up) but otherwise followed your instructions exactly. I'm most excited that my oldest daughter now has another healthy snack to add to her very limited list of healthy snacks (picky eater). Thanks from one Caryn to another....

I thought this was a great recipe. I liked the addition of the lemon juice as an additional of that flavor that you just can't place. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

THIS WAS SOO AWESOME! There are no less the 20 zillion banana bread recipes in the world, and I am proud to adopt this one as my favorite. Firstly, I love it because it browned perfectly. Usually banana bread comes out with a dark chocolate colored crust, but this turned out beautifully golden brown. I loved the additon of lemon juice. It really added to the flavor! Texture was outstanding, it was very moist, banana-y and went wonderfully with the pecans I added. I commend you on posting suck an awesome recipe.

Easy and delicious! I made a couple of substitutes. First I used butter instead of margarine and replaced 1/2 c flour with 1/2 c. wheat bran. The mix came together easily and I dropped it into muffin tins. They turned out light and delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

This is absolutely my family's favorite banana bread recipe. I have the same comments as the other posters -- excellent browning, texture, taste. And it is _so_ deliciously moist. I make it without nuts or chips and substitute butter for margarine if it's on hand. I have to make it in small loaves and freeze it, otherwise a double batch will be gone in a weekend!
