    laurenpie's Note:

    Old fashioned banana bread, excellent use of your over-ripe bananas! Same recipe makes either a loaf or 12 muffins. Walnuts are optional, we usually don't add them.

      Wonderful banana bread! What made this great for me is the spices in it, different from the banana bread recipes I've made before. I baked mine in mini-loaf pans, for about 45 minutes, and got 4 small loaves. Moist and flavorful - thanks for sharing the recipe!

      The spices give a great taste to these banana muffins. I omitted the nuts so I can send some muffins to my son at school. I used only 1/2 cup of sugar which was perfect. Thanks laurenpie :) Made for PAC Spring 2013

      Great banana bread. I really loved the spices. The bread was nice and moist with a crispier crust. I might try it with butter instead of the shortening to see if it would still work well. Thank you! Made for I Recommend tag in the Cooking Tag Game forum
