    why is the dough so dense?

    It turned out perfect. The pan I used was too large made, so the bread ended being a little flat, but otherwise it's amazing. I used regular flour and added some raisins, and the result is great. Even the smell drives you a little nuts.

    The inside turned out like play-dough and the outside was hard and leathery.

    Useful information missing: Don't leave the oven at 350 degrees while baking.

    Did not work out well. Very dense and dough-like texture even when fully baked. Edible but not enjoyable.

    Very poor result. I followed the recipe step by step, unfortunately 55 minutes oven baking later turned out to be a big dissapointment.....:(

    Made in muffin pan, baked for around 30 mins, omitted sugar, used 6 small bananas, added cinnamon, used 1.75 cups white flour, added raisins. Delicious!

    This is not your average fattening banana bread. The ingredients are simple and it is very quick and easy to make. If you have some extra ripe bananas you need to do something with, this is a decent fast and easy! I have made it 3x now. The first time I just added some pecans. The second time I added chocolate chips. The third time, I added walnuts and 1/3 cup chocolate/peanut butter chips. If you wanted it more decadent, you could use 1/2-1 cup of those morsels. I also do not have a normal oven. I use a countertop oven slightly larger than a small toaster oven. So I had to reduce the heat by 25 degrees and reduce the cooking time by 10 minutes. Came out more moist on the inside that way. Oh - and I use 4 LARGE bananas, not regular size. If you use regular size, I would use 5 bananas instead. I'm satisfied enough with this recipe that I have made it 3x and will make it some more. I also like that there is no added oils and it uses whole wheat flour instead of white flour.
