Like the other reviewers, I too have been making this recipe since the '70's to rave reviews. I do make just a couple of modifications: I use yogurt instead of buttermilk and I add a teaspoon of vanilla to the banana mixture.
I've been making this banana bread since I was in college in the 70's. It's still the only banana bread I make. I prefer using yogurt instead of buttermilk. Also, I mash up some of the bananas and then add some cut up chunks. Thanks for posting!
Way back in the '70s I had, and used 'til it was in pieces, this cookbook. Eventually the piles of pieces got tossed and with it the recipe, which is THE BEST I have ever found. As my children have grown into great cooks and offered up many different banana bread recipes, none as good as "the one Mom used to make." SO glad to have found it again! It still tastes GREAT!
This is the only banana bread I make. It's a heavy, wet, flavorful bread that makes a hit whenever I share it. Lost my cookbook and was thrilled to find the recipe here!
