This banana bread was really delicious thank you Joallo. Crunchy outside and lovely and moist inside. I used yoghurt instead of sour cream which seemed to produce a happy outcome!

Wow! Super moist & delicious flavor! I had to deviate slightly when my two over-ripe bananas only yielded 3/4 cup. I topped it off with applesauce (the taste wasn't altered any) & I used Mexican vanilla; no nuts this time. The whole family is loving this bread. I was hoping to have it for breakfast in the morning but I'm not sure it'll make it. ;) Thanks for posting, Joallo! Made & enjoyed for New Kids on the Block Tag Game. http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=331961&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
