  1. Super easy and super tasty.
  2. Great for a 1st time banana bread maker. Here are my adjustments: 1tbs of rum (next time banana rum), 1 tbs of vanilla soymilk, 1 tbs of sour cream. Oh and since i didnt have any nuts on hand I used butter pecan cake mix box that i had in my pantry. It also took longer than 55 minutes too but only a little longer. Thanks for such an easy recipe.
  3. Most excellent!! Made it twice and as muffins. Used spice cake mix.
  4. I really liked these both for the taste and baking ease! I made them as "cupcakes" in the papers and smeared a little peanut butter on top of a few. Great taste and great recipe!
  5. Great, easy recipie. This was my first attempt to make banana bread. Turned out Great! I was so pround for a first try. Thanks for taking the time to post this recipie.


  1. What an easy, no-fuss way to make banana bread. Not a lot of ingredients, and almost no measuring. The texture was tender and cake-like, with just the right amount of banana flavor. I baked my bread in 4 small loaf pans that took about 40 minutes. I also subbed pecans for the walnuts. My daughter took one loaf to work, and she and her co-workers loved it. I gave another loaf to a neighbor, who also loved it.
