I made this twice. Both times it burned around the edges and did not cook in the middle. It overflowed in the loaf pan and I used a large one. I would think you could easily get two loafs out of this if you increased the recipe by 1/3. I made a mess in the stove twice, next time I will make a little bit more and make two. What did cook was good, but way too much batter for one loaf pan.

I had some extra bananas in the freezer so I thought I'd give this recipe a try. I added chocolate chips and it made it even better! The shortening was the trick. Thanks for sharing!

I used butter instead of shortening (i hope you don't mind) because we had no shortening in the house. The crust was crunchy, and the centre was moist and tasty. My first food-sampling guinea pig called it "delightful". It wasn't as sweet as it could be, as the bananas wern't overripe, but it gobbled up quickly anyway! My guinea pigs ratings varied from 4/5 - 5/5, and I rate it 5/5. Great recipe. :) Made for veg swap 09

This bread was very moist and tasty. I used a stoneware bread pan and the sides were starting to get brown just before the center was done. I pulled the loaf out and the center set-up just fine as it cooled. My 4 year old helped make it and loves it!
