Reviews for Banana Bread
"I followed the recipe exactly, but it turned out to be dry without much banana flavor. I won't be making it again."
"My son is allergic to milk and eggs and this was a great version for someone with allergies. Thank you!"
"Added a little cinnamon. Delicious."
"This actualy came out moist, I was surprised.The only thing is, it is kind of bland, it is tastes like it is missing something.Next time I will add some spices, like cinnamon and or nutmeg."
"This has a wonderful taste! It is much lighter than my mother's recipe! I doubled the recipe but then found out that I did not have quite enough mashed banana to make 2 cups so I added some unsweetened applesauce to the bananas to equal 2 cups. Worked well! Doubling the recipe makes 1 loaf pan and 6 mini-loafs. The mini-loafs only took 30 minutes to cook."
"I was looking for a banana bread recipe to make and I came across this one without milk or eggs and figured I'd give it a try. One of my girls has allergies and does not get to enjoy banana bread with the others, so now she can. It was delicious. I made two loaves and both were gone in a day and a half."
"Excellent recipe! so easy and fast to make, tastes delicious!"
"i find it extremely wiggy that this recipe has no liquids in it."
"I made this because my daughter cannot have milk. I doubled the recipe and made it in a bundt pan. Yum! You never would know it doesn't have eggs or milk!"
