    Jostlori's Note:

    A super easy, tried and true banana bread. No mixer required! Been making this for as long as I can remember. And now that I have bananas literally growing outside my front door, it's the most frequently made recipe in my house! It's equally good as a loaf or as banana muffins. The original recipe is by Anita Strauss, La Jolla, but I have changed it up to my taste. You can add 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans if you like nuts in your banana bread - I don't! This is a very versatile and forgiving recipe. Try adding crushed pineapple, coconut, raisins, craisins, chocolate chips, etc... You won't be sorry!

      Since I had a boatload of various dried fruits on hand (along with 3 overripe bananas), I used this recipe to make a lovely banana-kiwi-mango bread. I think I only used an 8" pan for this, but it's definitely enough for a 9" bread, so my bread took an extra 20 minutes to fully bake through. I really liked that this didn't require a mixer to make, so I was able to make it without waking DH while he napped on the sofa. This is yummy as-is, but it was especially good when sliced, toasted, and lightly buttered. Next time I'd like to try it with pineapple and coconut in it. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2012

      This is stellar! Somehow, when copying the recipe, I failed to note so then left out the 3/4 cup white sugar. We liked that the loaf wasn't overly sweet and particularly liked that the banana flavor is predominant so I'll make it next time the same way. The bread slices beautifully and made into mini loaves will be perfect for holiday gift baskets. I agree that nuts and other ingredients could be added, but it's great as written. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Discovered during Spring 2012 Pick A Chef. :-)
