    A fairly easy banana bread that uses a the creaming method for a lighter texture. Not cake-like, but not as dense as some quick breads.

      Outstanding! This recipe is not only easy, which is great, but the creaming method really does make a better texture. Not dense and heavy, and not light and airy. I used pecans over walnuts, and mini milk chocolate chips. My kids destroyed the first loaf in record time. The second one was hidden in the freezer-"Not me" and "I don't know" are not claiming responsibility! Thanks for posting this recipe. Di ;-)

      I make mine very similar to this, with few variations, and it turns delicious each time. So I tried this recipe this time and it's just as good! I used 1 cup almonds and 1 cup brazilnuts instead of walnuts which I didn't have. I kept 1 loaf and DH took the remaining 2 loaves to give to 2 of his classes and it was enjoyed by ALL! Thank you, Steve_G, for sharing!
