Another yummy recipe using Friendship starter.

Top Review by Jadelabyrinth

As a quick bread, the recipe rose and is moist. I made 5 small loaves (3" x 6") from the recipe that took 35 minutes to cook through. As a banana bread, this recipe has failed. I could barely taste the banana and overall the bread was bland, lacking in both spices and extracts. I won't be making this again, sorry.
