This was a wonderful banana bread. It was nice and moist and full of banana flavor. I also used chopped walnuts and stuck to the recipe without making any alterations, and it was really delicious. Thanks lasustacy. Made for Spring 2010 Pick-A-Chef.

Made for PAC Spring 2009, this is a very excellent banana bread. I made the recipe into muffins and froze them so that my DH could take them for lunch, excellent review from him. Thanks, I will make again.

This is definitely "the best" banana bread! I followed the instruction exactly and used walnuts. Great flavor and very moist. This is a winner, Isustacy. Can't wait to make it again.
