Yummy, yummy! I made the bread into 12 huge muffins and used the whole bag of butterscotch chips with no nuts. This was a great and yummy way to use up my overripe bananas. Thanks, Charmie!!

Really good! Used 1 cup mashed banana and skipped the nuts. Baked 50-55 minutes. Thanks for sharing the recipe

Oh my, this banana bread is a definate keeper, the butterscotch goes really well with the bananas, it is rich and moist and the caramelized crust is to die for. I used my own pecans for the nuts and I did add 1 teaspoon of vanilla but that is the only change I made. This is going in as one of my favorite banana breads, and I have tried a lot of nana bread recipes, thanks for the keeper!
