I am getting ready to put two pans in the oven right now. I have been making this for a few months now and the family just loves it. I have been putting walnuts in mine and will try pecans next time. I also put in a generous dose of Sailor Jerrys spiced rum to really make it yummy. I like to top a slice with whipped cream and serve with a good cup of coffee for dessert.
I followed the recipe exactly (4 small bananas instead of 3, and I also noticed that adding vanilla was in the instructions, so I added 1 teaspoon). This made 1 large, moist, banana-y loaf of deliciousness. I even forgot to add nuts, and ended up stirring them 10 minutes into baking. The recipe is very forgiving, I didn't even notice. Perfect banana bread right here!!!!!
This is a wonderful banana nut bread. Its ingredients are simple and same as found in in our grandmothers recipes, which I refer to as tried and true.
