    Overton Fam's Note:

    I have been testing and trying banana bread recipes for the past couple of years trying to find "the best" one for my recipe collection. Recently, I noticed this recipe on a bag of flour that I purchased. The recipe on the bag carried the name "Best Ever Banana Bread". I figured I had to try it. I did and now I will look no further. This is the one makes it into my recipe book. It is moist and full of flavor. It's the perfect banana bread. Thank you Gold Medal Flour.

      Sorry, but this didn't work for me. Great flavor, but too dense. My loaf looked like it rose up high, and the wooden pick came out clean when I tested it, but as it cooled it sunk. Maybe too much moisture in recipe? Maybe one less banana would have worked.

      What a wonderful banana nut bread, so full of flavor and very moist. Made as written using a 9-inch loaf pan and will be made again soon, a keeper for sure. Thanks for posting.
