Oh my gosh! Used this recipe for years after searching for THE best and this was it! Lost the recipe card and came across the recipe! Thank you for posting! P.S. found recipe card 3 days later!!
I've been using this recipe going on 5 years. This is the only banana nut bread recipe I'll use. I follow the recipe exactly as it reads. My husband's family and my side of the family will always ask me to make the bread each Thanksgiving and Christmas. Again, THIS IS THE ONLY BANANA NUT BREAD RECIPE I WILL EVER USE!!! THIS IS PERFECTION!!!
I liked this so much and today is already the second time I am making this!!! To make things look a bit nicer, I add almond slice at the top as well, pretty and yumm!!!
Lifesaver! I have been saving bananas for over a week now, and I misplaced the recipe card. (Yes, we received it as a freebie several years ago.) Thank goodness this one was posted! I don't even like bananas much, but we all eat through a loaf so fast around here that they do not last very long. It is great when it comes out of the oven, especially the crisp ends. And on the following days, it is a great snack "on the go" if you cut a slice, cube it and stick those in a plastic bag. OK...heating up the oven in 3...2...1...
I also go this recipe in a mailer. This is the best Banana Bread I have ever made and I have made my share. I also use this recipe to make carrot bread, apple bread and zucchini bread. I just change up the vanilla and sometimes add cinnamon. The results are the same, I make this as gifts and give it away and I am always asked for this recipe.
I have been looking for this recipe since Thanksgiving of 2008 when I made it last. I too received this o the mail order recipe card as a 'free" sample and it has for many many years been a favorite of mine. So glad you posted this! :)
I have a very similar recipe except we use whole wheat flour, almond extract and sliced almonds. I continously have requests for this bread. It is also a great recipe for my 2 & 3 year old daughters to help with.
I don't like bananas so I made this for my DH. He thought it was excellent--moist and falvorful. I made it in a loaf pan.
I had found another recipe as well and could not decide which to try out. Since I had enough bananas I decided to make them both. This one won by a long run on moistness and flavor. However, I did not have the heavy cream so I substituted sour cream for that and added 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Man 'o man how I ran with this pan!! THANK YOU, Juju!
