"The flavor is good, but texture is not what I expected. I'm not going so far as to say that its dry, but its definitely not moist. The color is light, almost sand-like--also unexpected. I used zucchini this time. I'd be willing to try again with different ingredients, but I'm not holding out hope that it will be better. My banana bread recipe is 10x better than this.Also, I pulled it out of the oven a few minutes early, as it was already done. My oven is usually slow...I did see several people commenting on changing the temp to 350, but the instructions say 350, so maybe there is an issue with the temp."
"I cut the recipe in 1/2 but used 2 eggs, no oil and 1 c. fruit plus 1/2 c. fruit puree....... the 1 c. was strawberries and rhubarb; the puree was strawberries.... YUM!"
"My 4 yr. old is VERY picky, and she LOVES this bread!!! Any time we get bananas she immediately asks if I will make banana bread for her. This is defiantly a must keep!"
"I have used this recipe time and again and made adjustments to suit my tastes! Dawn E. Lowenstein"
"I have made this recipe before and I've found it really good! I have adjusted the recipe to suit my tastes! I used 2 cups sugar: 1/2 brown & 1/2 white, and I used three cups of A to Z ingredients, rather than 2 cups. Ingredients I'd used yesterday were a combination of cooked, mashed sweet potatoes, ground Navel orange, chopped unpeeled Granny Smith apple and chopped Bing cherries, pitted,to make 3 cups total. I used 1 tsp. eachof baking powder, baking soda and salt & 2 tsp. ground cinnamon. I also baked the loaves in three 8-1/2x4-1/2" loaf pans and baked the loaves at 350o F. instead of 325o F. For me, this method worked.I used the 55 to 65 time! I've baked thisbread a # of times and took it to our chapelfor our Sunday morning coffee breaks!People have really enjoyed this bread!Thank you for sharing this recipe, MarcellaOkawa! delowenstein"
