Good basic banana bread recipe. My favorite part of this recipe is that I didn't have to run to the store for anything! Simplicity is good. It has a nice, soft texture with crispy brown outside. However, next time I would add less sugar (too sweet), more banana, some cinnamon/vanillla and maybe a handful of nuts or mini chocolate chips. I think this recipe could be fantastic with a few tweaks!

Very good, and super simple! I took the advice of other posters and used 1/2 brown sugar, and 1/2 white. I also added 1 tsp of vanilla and a touch of cinnamon, as well as using 2 1/2 bananas. I was able to make this and get it in the oven with my 9 month old pulling on my leg... very easy.

this is definitely a basic recipe that can be used a few different ways. you can substitute the banana for one cup of applesauce or pumpkin puree and it turns out very delicious.

I've been making this for about a year now and forgot to rate it. I had been on a quest to find the "perfect" banana bread recipe, thinking it would never happen. Funny it turns out this is the one and it's the easiest. First time I made this I did exactly as directed, and since have tweaked it according to my mood. I've combined brown & white sugar, added vanilla and cinnamon, added a banana and it always comes out perfect. THANK YOU for ending my quest, this is now my go-to banana bread recipe.

Very good and easy to make! I used the majority of 4 ripened bananas and added some vanilla extract. I used the processor, so everything was easy to mix and smooth.

This turned out a bit dry for me even though I used 3 medium bananas. I found the center was not cooked so had to leave it in longer which probably made it dry. Good flavour though so I would try again.

Very moist, good flavor, and very easy to make. My only hesitation in making it again is that it is very pale in color and that when my DH took it to work to share, it did not dissappear, which surprised me. I think it is very good for the few number of ingredients, but I'm not sure I would make it again.

I was a little worried about this recipe--only four ingredients?! But I had everything on hand, wanted banana bread but didn't have enough flour, and decided to bite the bullet. Oh my goodness, am I ever glad I did! This is FABULOUS banana bread, and it was so easy to whip together! I even used the generic brand of buttermilk pancake mix, and it turned out amazing. The only other change I made was to add an extra banana, and my loaf was super moist and really flavorful. Thanks so much for an amazing recipe!

It's a tad dry for my taste. I don't know if it is because I used a generic version of Bisquick.
