  1. The is an incredibly good recipe. We turned it into 12 GIGANTIC muffins and put nuts on 6 and 6 ones with the plain recipe. This is incredible for families with picky eaters and makes for a wonderful balanced brunch.
  2. I have used this recipe for years, except I use it with zucchini. When your garden throws out an over abundance of zucchini try it with this recipe.
  3. This is the best banana bread ever! By mistake I used 1/2 cup butter and oh my it was good! I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup as the butterscotch chips are very sweet. It was divine! My hubs couldn't stop eating it.
  4. Yummy, yummy! I made the bread into 12 huge muffins and used the whole bag of butterscotch chips with no nuts. This was a great and yummy way to use up my overripe bananas. Thanks, Charmie!!
  5. Very good. The only thing I would add is possibly another banana or more butter. I found it to be a little dry.


  1. Thanks for the great recipe. I add cadbury caramel buttons for a chocolaty, caramel touch. Especially good when still warm from the oven.
