This recipe is delicious. I followed instructions as written for the 1st try and it was a hit. On the second attempt, I added some pecans and chocolate chips, greased the loaf pan with butter and brown sugar, and it was amazing! I turned the heat up to 350 for an additional 5 minutes to get the outside very brown and crusty, and it worked like a charm. I highly recommend this recipe as is, or doctored up with your favorite goodies.
Seriously good!! Heaven forbid(!), i discoverd i had not enough butter to make a cake! so googled 'betterless banana loaf' & found this recipe. Doubled it (usualy triple recipies so double was being moderate) .....OH MY GOODNESS! kids (my 4 boys and several neighboughing kids) practically demolished it after school (managed to save a slither for hubbys lunch tomorrow!) Wont be looking for any other banana cake recepie any time soon (& will try adding nuts next time!) YUM! YUM!
The banana bread is just perfect not too sweet which is why I loved it I add shredded almond on top, next time I'll mix it in.
