    Our entire family loved it! My husband loved it so much that he like eating it without butter spread on it. For my husband, that is saying a LOT, so this recipe definitely warrants 5 stars. :)

    This is a perfect banana bread recipe. It is very moist and full of banana flavor. Mine baked just right after 55 minutes. A definite keeper! Thanks for sharing.

    This was tasty but it needed salt. I followed the directions as posted but it didn't call for salt. Next time ai will use this recipe but add salt. I also lined my pan with parchment paper so nothing would stick to the bottom of the pan, which often happens with banana bread.

    This is an excellent recipe for banana bread. I made it last night and it turned out perfect. I am very happy that I found this. Thanx for posting, MarcieDanielle!!


I started cooking just by helping my Mom out in the kitchen as a little girl. I preferred baking over cooking, as I loved getting all into measuring things and stirring. I always got to stir! However in the past 5 years I've been the one responsible for making nightly dinners. At first this consisted of the same 10 or so dishes in a constant rotation, but that quickly became boring and I remembered how much my Mom would complain when I was younger about how she always made the same things and she never knew what new dishes to try! Obviously 20 years ago, Zaar wasn't around! I still cook a lot of the same type of dishes my Mom cooked when we were younger and I try to incorporate as much fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs into my meals as possible. However Melvin's favorite food of all time is fried chicken so... I make sure he gets a fresh vegetable on the side! My favorite cook book is my staple cookbook which is the old red and white Better Homes Cook Book. My only pet peeve about cooking is bland food! <img src="">
