I used whole wheat flour, demerara sugar & added 2 tbls flax seed meal & 1 tbls chai spice blend seasoning, and it is excellent! Next time I will try allspice, but you can take this already excellent recipe & bend it in many directions.
This banana bread had a really great flavour with the added buttermilk, I love the idea. My b/f absolutely loved it, but I would have liked it better if it was a little less sweet. It was likely my fault for being over sweet because I added a handful of chocolate chips instead of nuts. I think I would prefer doing half brown sugar and half white next time. I'll give it a try because I will definitely be making this again. It took an extra half hour to bake than the time given. It turned out fantastically moist. Thanks for the recipe!!
The only reason I am giving this 4 stars is that it rec'd mixed reviews from my household. Even though he liked this, my husband prefers the more bread-y texture of my regular recipe. But I absolutely love this recipe so much more! It is so moist, and very flavorful, the banana taste is excellent. I thought it was going to be too sweet, and it probably could use a little less sugar if you are looking to cut down, but it was very good as is.
I intentionally buy too many bananas in order to have enough to make this bread. Co-workers and family all request it regularly. I use previously frozen mushy bananas and it turns out a bread that tastes gourmet. Love it.
I made this for Christmas and didn't change a thing. It is the best banana bread I have ever tasted. Very moist and flavorful. Thank you for a great recipe!
This banana bread is FULL of flavor and extremely moist. It is absolutely perfect and there isn't a single thing that needs to be changed or added. If you are looking for a good, basic, unadultrated banana bread recipe, this is it!
This is the best banana bread we've had in a very long time. We had this for breakfast and it was gone in no time. The only changes I made was that I didn't have any buttermilk so I used sour milk instead, I also used one cup of raisins instead of nuts and I used both whole wheat and white flour. Even with my subsitutions this was great for breakfast. Thanks kcdelong for posting this delicious banana bread recipe.
