I will never try another banana bread recipe because this one is the BEST! I used four very ripe bananas (many freckles) and added a 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon to the dry ingredients. I divided the batter into two smaller foil pans and baked for about 35-40 minutes. It is very moist and cake like with great banana flavor. Thanks!

Bananas come in all shapes and sizes. How many cups of bananas should I use? I made this using the same amount of bananas (1 1/3 cups) as other breads that call for 1.5 cups flour. It came out fine but I wish I knew what the contributor's 4 bananas yielded then I'd feel more confident in rating it.

Liked this banana bread! Liked the amount of bananas used in this recipe. The best part about this recipe is the amount of time it took to make and have in the oven! I think it took about 8 or 10 minutes and it was baking. I have a good banana recipe that I like, but the prep seems to take much longer. Will make again for sure! ( a tip about mashing bananas--I like to use a potato masher in a glass pie pan--it really speeds things up, and is easy to clean up!)

This is a no fail recipe for banana bread. It is excellent. What I did to make it a little healthier was I substituted applesauce for the butter and it came out really moist. If you want a great snack I would definately recommend this recipe. Thanks lkadle

EXCELLENT--truly the "BEST". 30 years of searching for the best taste, moistness, and easy recipe is finally over. This is in my personal cook book for ever. I did add some coconut, fresh grated nutmeg and some cinnamon for an added kick that pleased by personal food critic, hubby. Thanks so much for sharing.

This banana bread recipe is superb! Very moist and delicious! I made banana bread muffins and baked them for 20 minutes and that was perfect! I also added 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg and 1 cup walnuts. My husband said it is the best that he's ever eaten. I also took some to co-workers and they were amazed at how good these are. I will definitely be making these again and again......
