This is the best banana bread recipe ever! I learned how to cook from that red & white plaid cookbook & have always had good luck with the recipes. I've customized it over the years using more banana & brown sugar in place of the white sugar. I've also used the Splenda brown sugar & you can't tell the difference. I like to sprinkle brown sugar & diced macadamia nuts over the batter before baking, it adds a really nice touch. My family loves it!

I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup. Other than that I followed the recipe. I didn't use the nuts cause my son won't eat it with nuts. I baked it 10 more minutes. It's very moist and great taste. Thanks Lori :) Made for New Kids on the Block tag game

I had an 80's version of this cookbook and the instructions say to wrap the bread in plastic wrap after cooling and leave set overnight. Makes a denser, firmer and moister bread.

This is the very best banana bread recipe I have ever made. I had this recipe in my Better Homes cookbook and made it all the time....then I lost it! For almost two years I tried 6 different recipes but nothing I tried ever came close to this one. I am so happy I found it again! I just made two loaves tonight and I cant wait for them to cool down and cut into them. I don't add nuts but sometimes I add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Thanks Lori for submitting this!
