    My husband is really picky about his banana bread and we LOVED this recipe! I make it for all the holidays. It was a big hit for easter rather than a rich, guilt filled dessert! I also had to cok it for about an hour and 10 minutes...exactly...

  • This recipe is so good!! I added chocolate chips to mine and baked them into muffins. I also tweaked it to make pumpkin muffins. Just substitute the mashed banana for canned pumpkin and I added 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice. They turned out great! - 10/13/12
