This was such an easy recipie. My hubby went crazy for it. I had to freeze one of the loaves to make sure we had some for later. I didn't make any changes this time but I might try to reduce the sugar and oil a bit in the future. I would give this a ten if I could!!!
Made this bread yesterday and I have to say I love this recipe! Will be my go to banana bread from now on. Baked up beautifully in a bundt pan. The only changes I made were to reduce the oil by 1/4 cup and used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar because I didn't have enough white.
This is really a moist bread. I cut one loaf open because I just wasn't sure it was done. Too bad we had to eat it right away lol! I had super black bananas, so there was a great banana flavor. I used 1/2 cup of applesauce and 1/2 cup of oil instead of 1 cup oil. I reduced the sugar to 2 cups. It didn't seem sweet enough coming out of the oven, but sitting overnight, it became perfect. It is an easy recipe, anytime I don't want to bother with butter, I am using this one!!!
