Worst recipe ever. Bread tasteless, no sweetness at all. I wonder if the 1/4 c sugar is a mistake. Every other recipe I looked at called for at least 1 cup. Would never make this again, and have to throw the one I did make away.

This is a great banana bread recipe! Did a few little tweaks - I buttered the loaf pan then sprinkled it with cinnamon and sugar (a tip I picked up years ago-it adds a little somethin', somethin' to the outside crust). Sifted the flour ingredients together, then added 1/3 cup chopped walnuts and 2/3 cup of dark chocolate chips. Added 1 tsp vanilla to wet ingredients. **NOTE: I had to use 4 bananas to get 2 cups** Sprinkled a little cinnamon sugar on top before putting in oven. Was done around 55 mins. in our oven. Bread had good crumb inside and had nice crunch to outside. Tasted yummy with a good cup of coffee. Will make again for sure!

Blew me away! I baked this as a thank you to my physiotherapist and she shared it with the rest of the staff. All I had was a small corner and she had the same because the staff went bananas over it! I have to say that I, hmmm, modified the recipe a bit.<br/>I just put in 3 med. ripe bananas and didn't measure it. Next I put 3 different type of chocolate chips in. 1/3 cup normal chocolate , 1/3 butterscotch and 1/3 white chips.<br/>Then, while I was mixing the dry & wet together it dawned on me that I forgot the milk!! Arrggghh!!!! I checked the fridge and no milk!!!! Awww nawww!!!! So I settled for 10% cream instead and blended it all in. All this put me behind in my time so I had to rush the cooking and cranked the oven up to 375F for 35 to 40 mins instead. At 38 mins the toothpick was clear and out it came.<br/>I got alot of glances, stares and looks when I returned. They didn't believe me that I baked it. They thought my wife had done it. Tonight I'm baking 2 loaves to bring in tomorrow.<br/>A great, simple recipe. Nice and moist with good body. <br/>Many thanks to Deantini ;-)
