Top Review by DEE M.

I've been making the recipe for a few years and it's a big hit with every one. There are a few errors in the recipe, however. It's enough for a bundt cake pan or two regular loaf pans. It failed to say when you add the Crisco so I add it with the remaining bananas and lemon juice during step four. They also failed to tell you when to add baking soda but it goes in with all the other dry ingredients in step one of course. Very moist bread....
