    I like to add sour cream, about half cup, as well as some Baking powder to help the rise a bit half tsp with the Baking soda. I soak some apricot bits ,dried, in some oj or water to soften and add them with some toasted chopped walnuts.Sprinkle some course sugar on top before baking to make a nice shiny crust on top. Experiment is good!

    I don't think I have any tweaks, maybe a happy accident or two. When I added the vanilla I spilled a bit so it was probably more like a full teaspoon. I had 2 large overly ripe bananas and 1 small barely ripe banana. Everything still came together well and considering this was my first attempt at banana bread ever, it turned out amazing. I like chocolate chips or chunks in mine so I might experiment next time.

    Got a bread pan and made this a 2nd time. With the bread pan, it took almost 55 minutes to cook, unlike the muffin version. However, the bread pan version, in our opinion, was even better! Our 3 yr old loves this bread!!

    Did not have a bread pan so I used a muffin pan and cooked at 350 for 20 minutes and they came out perfect! Used 4 very ripe bananas, for sugar I used 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup honey. A great recipe and these were incredibly delicious warm and with a cup of coffee!
