    P4's Note:

    I got this recipe from a wonderful friend who is a chef and cooking instructor in Canada. I love it because it is super-moist, and has intense flavor. In a test of 5 different banana bread recipes, this is the one my husband and neighbors liked the best.

    5. 5
      Beat in the egg.
    6. 6

    13. 13
      Bake in a preheated 375°F oven until set in the centre.

      This is the best banana bread I have ever made. It is so moist that is really needs to stand a while before you cut into it, if you can wait that long! It was a contribution to my DH 'Goody Day" at work and disappeared in minutes. Needless to say, it was a success. Thanks!

      This banana bread really stands out from all i have ever tried, the flavours are truly heavenly. I added 1/2 cup pecans for fun 2nd try, first time made added 1 1/4 cup, way to many ! I have no loaf pans so i subbed a Bundt cake pan, it was ready in 25 mins, kinda turned into a banana cake, it worked fine !!! I only waited 15 mins before i had to sneak a piece, wow, wow, wow !!! Cannot wait for tom morning, it will have time to settle and flavours will meld... The instructions including the appearance possibly curdling helped me not to wonder what happened to the darn thing, thanx for noting detail. This recipe created a great balance of all flavours, not to sweet, just a perfect balance of everything, perfectly moist. I will be sharing this great banana bread tom, certain the crowd will love it as much as i did !!!!!!!!!
