This may well have been the best banana bread I have ever eaten. This recipe definitely deserves five stars. My only suggestion would be to perhaps add some chopped walnuts.

This is a great recipe. I went online looking for a banana bread recipe that didn't require buttermilk, and I came across this! It is GREAT! I baked mine in a bundt pan and it turned out perfect. The only changes I made were adding a tsp. of cinn. and a tsp. of nutmeg. I baked it at 340 degrees for 40 minutes. Wonderful...thanks for posting! ;)

This is fantastic! I used a silicone loaf pan, so I dropped the temperature to about 325 degrees and left it in for 50-55 minutes.
