    Kelly Vaughn's Note:

    I actually abandoned my "family" banana bread in favor of this one... It's more a like a cake than a bread. I have increased the bananas from the original recipe, and I prefer to omit the nuts. I like mine warm with butter on top. Yummy!

    7. 7
      Cut a piece of waxed or parchment paper the size of the bottom of your loaf pan.

      Scoop the batter into the pan.

      Sometimes it takes a little bit longer.
    14. 14
      If the top gets too brown, cover it with a piece of aluminum foil so it doesn't get too much darker.

      My partner and I love this, and he is usually skeptical of my banana breads (the family recipe I used for years always had a baking soda taste to it). I love that I can just toss in three bananas, and not smash and measure. Did you know you can just throw past-their-time bananas in the fridge, and under their brown jackets will be perfectly usable banana bread fodder? You can even throw them in the freezer still in their skins, in a freezer container. The last time I made this recipe, I replaced half the butter with applesauce, and all the white sugar with brown. Very moist, very yummy.

      This recipe was great. I made a double batch with 3 cups of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of all purpose flour. Also substituted half of the butter with apple sauce and 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 splenda instead of regular sugar. It came out moist and tasted great. Thank you for sharing. Def. a keeper!

      This recipe produced a large moist loaf with a wonderful flavor. The whole wheat flour adds so much taste to a bread that I usually find too sweet and cake-like. Family loved it! (One change: I did not have a blender, so I mashed the bananas, etc by hand and it worked fine!)
