This is a nice banana bread. I like that it uses a minimal amount of butter. I had just the right amount of patriotic sprinkles left over from 4th of July cupcakes to use up. They sort of melt into the batter just leaving their color. I had to cook this almost 20 minutes longer than it said, and my edges got really brown so that I had to put foil on them. That said, this has a nice flavor (though not very strong) and was enjoyed for breakfast. Thanks.
