This is one of the best banana breads out there. It's very moist and full flavored. Often, I'll put in mini-muffin tins for the kids (cut the baking time) is really that good!! Hope you think so too!

Love how easy this is. Combining the Sugar, Oil & Eggs makes a silky emulsion that absorbs the dry ingredients nicely. I used chopped walnuts, and then walnut oil to boost the flavor. Baked it just about 1 hour & 7 min in a metal pan. Just perfectly golden, not overbaked. My new go-to recipe - thanks!

It is that good... Liisa did not give a pan size so I used a 9 X 5 glass loaf pan. It could have been the glass, but it seemed to be done after an hour and 10 minutes I left it in for one hour 20 min which was too long. it was not burnt just over brown. I put a foil tent over it at one hour because it was getting too brown. I also did not line the pan with parchment.
