There is only a subtle banana flavor it is added in mostly for texture not flavor, these bake out lovely with a nice high point on top --- if desired drizzle glaze over the tops of the cooled loaves, see my Kittencal's Easy Creamy White Glaze

This is another wonderful recipe from Kittencal's kitchen. I used a little less sugar than the recipe called for, and it was plenty sweet. I used half white flour and half whole wheat pastry flour. Also, I baked my bread in a 9 x 5 loaf pan, so adjusted the cooking time up. This recipe is going into my file. Thanks so much!
Wish I could give this more than 5 stars Kitt! These were awesome! I did reduce the sugar to a little over half cup, and it was perfect. My picky hubby loves blueberries, so this is perfect for his coffee and ??? Thanks so much for posting, this is definately a keeper! Made for Chef's Pick at KK.
simply the best I have ever had wow these babies sure rise high, so moist with tones of wonderful flavor, Kit you have the best outstanding recipes, where is your cookbook?
