This was delicious and super easy to make. I added small amounts of vanilla and cinnamon, and I used half brown sugar, and half white sugar. I think that it would have been just as good without the modifications. I made muffins instead of one loaf of bread, and my children inhaled them.

This was DELICIOUS! It only made one standard loaf for me.
I try to add ground FLAX SEED wherever I can, and this proved wonderful. I added 2 tablespoons of GROUND FLAX SEED, and USED WALNUTS instead of pecans.
I think it will be a winner once the family gets to it!!
YUMMMYYYY!

Absolutely perfect. I've been adding a half-cup of pecans to each loaf and it makes it oh so good. The recipe is easy to make, requires ingredients that I keep on hand and has turned out perfect every time I have made it. This will definitely be a recipe that I will make for our church fall bazaar bake sale. Easy, dependable, cost efficient and GOOD.

This is a wonderful bread; I baked the full recipe in a standard meatloaf pan for 55 minutes and it was moist and delicious. Next time, I will carmelize the pecans before baking them in the bread for a taste of pralines!

Being a Paula groupie, I made this and while good there is another Recipezaar recipe BB recipe that I will stick with which is much moister. This is still a good authentic banana bread and tastes great toasted with cold butter.

This recipe only made 1 loaf of bread and it took much longer to cook then the recipe estimates. I ended up cooking it 15+ min longer. I also believe there needs to be better directions with this recipe. Such as how full to fill loaf pans etc. A friend of mine was making this same recipe and with her being very new to baking she found herself feeling like she didn't know exactly what needed to be done.
