This banana bread was decent. I really disliked the flavour from the lemon juice. Maybe a bit of vanilla extract might be better? My husband liked it but I probably won't be making this again. I will say this though: it was VERY VERY moist.
This was incredible bread. With the ingredient at home I had to substitute a few. I used organic brown sugar, 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 cup organic vanilla yogurt, and unbleached white flour. I also put the walnuts on the bottom of a greased loaf tin so they would bake into the top. I omitted the lemon rind since I did not have any. When it was finished I inverted the bread so the walnuts were on the top and made a topping of 1/4 cup of melted butter and some organic sugar to drizzle over the top. It formed a yummy crusty top. I will probably always use this recipe from now on. Thanks SOOOO much!
I don't know if it's just me but the bread didn't cook all the way through.
