      Steve, this recipe is sensational! I have to admit, I had no plain yogurt on hand, so I substituted sour cream in its place, but it proved to be perfect! Nothing like a delicious slice of hot buttered banana bread on a fall morning! Mmmmmmm! ; ) Thanks again, Steve!

      I made this tonight-my first attempt at banana bread. This is wonderful! My children and I are devouring it. I did make a couple of changes out of necessity. I did not have nuts so I added one cup of chocolate chips. I also did not have yogurt, and I didn't know what to use as a substitute, so I tried a single serve applesauce (4oz). I baked it for 51 minutes and it was perfect. It will be great without chocolate chips also, as I can really taste the bananas. Thanks for a keeper recipe.
