This is a very moist bread, but it is missing something! It doesn't taste banana enough or sweet enough either. Otherwise it is full proof and presents well.

This is wonderful, better than my regular go to bread. I left out the nuts becasue I forgot to add them in, otherwise made exactly as directed. I did hae to bake about 10 minutes longer but I think that's because I used a slightly smaller bread pan...but it still came out baked perfectly all the way through and moist and smelled so fantastic! Thanks!
