You are SO right - I'm throwing away all my other banana bread recipes!!!!! This bread is very moist! It really IS better the next day!! Make SURE you're using a FULL size bundt pan or this WILL overflow (voice of experience! LOL!) My changes: Instead of 6 T buttermilk I used 6 T water + 3 T instant buttermilk powder Added 1 tsp vanilla extract Added 1 tsp almond extract Omitted the nuts (personal preference)
Best banana bread I have ever baked! I added raisins and orange zest!
Best banana bread recipe. Really quick and easy to make. Brought it into work today, and within an hour it was gone.
