I have made this recipe countless times, and it always turns out great. I have subbed plain yogurt, or 1/2c skim milk with a teaspoon of lemon juice for the sour cream, and it works fine. I even realized someone had eaten my bananas after I had already started making this, so I subbed 1c unsweetened applesauce and 1t cinnamon- it was delicious! Thank you for posting!

Very nice. I like the oil over the butter as it turns out with a nice crumb this way. Thank you for posting!---- Edit over two months later---- I started to make this tonight, as I have a ton of bananas which are turning. I'M ALMOST OUT OF S.C- SOOO I used yogurt cups, (sugar free fat free) and flavoured (strawberry and peach)- and it was REALLY good. Not as 'brisk' as s.c. but still tasty. I subbed about 1/4 cup of the s.c. for yogurt.

Delicious! I just finished baking the bread and it turned out so yummy. I sprinkled the pans with cinnamon and sugar after spraying with pam and it added a nice texture and flavor, but
it would have been just great without it. This will be my go to recipe for banana bread from now on.

Loved this, couldn't find my usual recipe and thought this look pretty similar. Baked a double batch (had four banana's to use up) and then 15 minutes into cooking realised I had left out the eggs! Couldn't believe it, but it was too late to get them back out the oven. Thought I was going to get two large loaves of dried banana bread but it was still moist and delicious. Not sure if I should add the eggs next time...Thanks for sharing.

Perfect. I would never use a different one. It's been voted "best banana bread recipe" in my family of banana bread makers! The only thing I do differently is I sub 1/4 c. of the oil with a single-serving cup of applesauce (1/4 c.). Makes no difference, but it makes me feel a little better about it fat-wise!

Perfect! I'm not even a banana bread fan (I made this for the hubby) and we both loved it. I can say I am now a fan. Perfect balance of sweetness, edges were nice and crisp but the bread so soft. My husband had to take it to work or I would have eaten the whole thing!

Absolutely loved this banana bread! I added some chopped walnuts and used plain greek yogurt for the sour cream. Delicious!

Great recipe. I don't use much sour cream so I subbed fat free plain Greek yogurt. Added about a tsp of milk to thin it out a little. Works great. Now I need to get busy using all the frozen bananas I've been hoarding.

Found this recipe on another website in 2003 submitted by Tim Culey. Been making it several times a year since then. I don't usually like banana bread (I bake it for my partner) but this one I always take a slice when it is still warm. I haven't tried the apple sauce version, but after reading these reviews I think I'll give it a try.

This bread turned out quite moist with a true banana flavot. I added just a few semi-sweet chocolate chips and sprinkled chopped pecans on top. Just a great, easy recipe.
