    Delicious! I made a few changes to the original recipe. I used 4 bananas (I like my banana bread to be super banana-y). Instead of 2 eggs, I used just 1 egg and 1/3 cup of applesauce to make the bread moist. I used only 1/3 cup of sugar and it was brown sugar instead of granulated sugar. I didn't make the topping either, just sprinkled a good dose of cinnamon on top. It turned out phenomenal! It was a huge hit and I'll certainly be making it again.

    This is a great recipe! I was planning to leave off the topping, however I inadvertently left out the sugar too! Thankfully I had added 3 rather large bananas and the bread was really quite yummy. My husband preferred it not too sweet and the bananas alone did the trick. Since I was ommiting the topping I added some cinnamon to the batter as well as a touch of vanilla. I will make this again!!

    The BEST banana bread ever! I was worried when the batter was so thick and gooey, but WoW! It came out of the oven perfect. I added shaved dark chocolate and highly recommend. Thanks!

    Beautiful, simple recipe for teaching others how to bake. I substituted Dark Brown Sugar for white, & I 86'd the topping, due to food allergies others may have, & to lessen the calories; Of course there is cream cheese very close by! Displayed it one of my Master Baker Moms beautiful plates :)

    Just made this recipe, half-batch. I added a little more BP and BS, just to bump up the volume a bit, and skipped the topping entirely. I'm afraid I'll never make another batch of BB as good as long as I live. It was perfect, absolutely perfect. Moist, dense, flavourful: Perfect. Thanks for the recipe. I'll be trying it again, as soon as possible.

    Can I replace the white flour in this recipe with whole wheat flour?
