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.

Oh my sweet Liisa!!! This is the perfect recipe!!! My husband and daughter are not big sweet eaters and they devoured this bread!! I forgot just how good banana nut bread can be. I had some bananas that I was supposed to make a banana pudding with and I got lazy. So, when the banana were too ripe, I thought about banana bread to keep from throwing them away. This is the quickest bread to make and I was excited while making it. I cooked it in a glasses loaf pan so an hour was all the time I needed on the baking. I will forever make this bread with your recipe!! Thanks so very much....

I made this as muffins. Used 4 bananas instead of 3 and used toasted walnuts. Took them to work and everyone loved them. Later made as loaves and bread was done after 1 hour 10 minutes.

Very nice banana bread. I like that fact that other flavors, such as cinnamon and chocolate are not added. I baked mine in a 5 1/8 cup metal loaf pan. It was a little full, but didn't overflow because it flares at the top. It took only about 1 hour for my banana bread to be baked. (But my oven tends to be unreliable.) Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

I can't begin to thank you enough for posting this recipe! I had been using this recipe since the 1970's but ended up losing my collection in the 90's and couldn't quite remember the exact amounts and my experiments never could match it :( My family always loved this banana bread, I used walnuts, and added lots of cinnamon and was always told this was the best banana bread anyone had ever had. Thank you so much, Liisa for sharing this wonderful recipe with everyone!

I just made this banana nut bread with walnuts in a parchment lined 9 x 5 glass pan and 3 1/2 very ripe bananas and it turned out GREAT! Baked it for 70 minutes. The crust is amazingly crispy and the bread is dense and moist.
