  1. This was incredible bread. With the ingredient at home I had to substitute a few. I used organic brown sugar, 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 cup organic vanilla yogurt, and unbleached white flour. I also put the walnuts on the bottom of a greased loaf tin so they would bake into the top. I omitted the lemon rind since I did not have any. When it was finished I inverted the bread so the walnuts were on the top and made a topping of 1/4 cup of melted butter and some organic sugar to drizzle over the top. It formed a yummy crusty top. I will probably always use this recipe from now on. Thanks SOOOO much!
  2. Very moist & dense. I loved the fact it was made with whole wheat flour, but wasn't sure how hubby would react (and I didn't tell him there was yogurt in it, either!) He likes it! I also substituted orange juice & orange rind, since he doesn't like lemon. Excellent bread - a nice change from the usual banana bread. I will make this again - thanks for posting! -M :-)
  3. I agree with you - This bread is WONDERFUL! Also, it is more healthy than banana bread made with white flour or all-purpose flour. It makes a healthy and filling breakfast for children. I just made a loaf for my little 7 yr old friend, Abi, and I'm gifting it to her tonight. I love the aroma of the bread while baking it. BTW, I did use Black walnuts(that I received as a present from Uncle Miller just y'day) for the walnuts! I did not add the fresh lemon rind. Thanks for posting! I'll make it again, very soon!
  4. Excellent banana lemon loaf!!! I LOVE the lemon flavor, and the consistency was perfect. I couldn't even tell that it had all whole wheat flour! (I used white whole wheat.) I'll definitely keep this one. ??
  5. This banana bread was decent. I really disliked the flavour from the lemon juice. Maybe a bit of vanilla extract might be better? My husband liked it but I probably won't be making this again. I will say this though: it was VERY VERY moist.
