    akcooker's Note:

    My husband never like banana bread until I developed this uniquely textured version made with yogurt. These loaves freeze well: wrap in foil and freeze; thaw in foil until room temperature.

      I have tried many, many banana bread recipes over the years and really found this one to be about the best. I almost always modify a recipe as I enjoy the experimentation. My simple changes included adding generous amounts of cinnamon and nutmeg, extra vanilla; I also used a greek vanilla yogurt. For nuts, I used very finely processed pecans, which I then toasted. I know some reviewers felt toasting had little impact, but I do think it heightens the flavor of the pecans -- plus it's so easy to do in a toaster oven. I have a definite sweet tooth, but try to reduce the amount of sugar we eat whenever possible, so I used a generous half cup of Splenda, a 1/4 cup of white sugar and a 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Like others, it didn't take as long to bake, which I did so in a 370 oven. Thanks so much for a truly great recipe. My husband, my son and I all enjoyed it and I encourage anyone to try this one next if you're in search of a delicious banana bread!

      DO NOT MAKE THIS RECIPE! I just made it and it is in the garbage can! I am so mad! As the reviews suggested I only baked it for 55mins and it almost burned! Then I let it cool, it fell and I cut into it to discover the inside was raw! It should have baked at 350 for an hour!!! I feel so deceived and deprived.... What a waste!

      Ooops! Did not read the comments before trying this recipe. The recipe is fine but when I checked the big loaf pan after 65 mins it was overdone by about 10 mins. Yikes. Would be nice if the original recipe instructions for baking time could be changed.
