"This is a moist, delicious banana bread i have been baking for a long time. I like to make large banana muffins to take to work. By making muffins, you can add walnuts to some and not others. Enjoy!!"
Serving Size: 1 (160 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"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."
"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."
"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."
"Made this banana bread today as I had several very ripe bananas and all the ingredients on hand. My daughter loved it and sliced into it right out of the oven! Great recipe...like that it uses oil and not butter. Next time I will try half oil and half applesauce and maybe throw in some pecans. Thanks for posting!"
"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."
"Yummy!!! If only I hadn't shared my banana bread with my neighbor! I could be munching on those slices right now! Seriously, I love being able to use the oil, instead of the butter...and no mention of nuts, which I don't like in my banana bread. This one's definitely a keeper! Thanks so much 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!"
"I have been making this bread for years and just found the recipe here. Don't change a thing and is fantastic whenever we have ripe banana's."
"This recipe turned out great! I wanted to try it because I was looking for a banana bread that used oil instead of butter. I really couldn't much tell the difference between my "butter" recipe or this one, plus this one is more economical. I used yogurt instead of the sour cream, but other than that, followed along the recipe. Thanks for posting!"
