MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 30, 2014

Terrific, I cut down to 3/4 cup of white sugar and 1/4 c. brown sugar and next time will cut it even more... however; I, also, used melted butter because I did not have oil ..it was decadent.

MY REVIEW

I choose this recipe because it only needed 2 bananas for a loaf. I had 5 available and I wanted two loafs. This was such delicious banana bread. I didn't have buttermilk and just used regular milk too. I didn't have Canola oil, so I used vegetable oil. This is so moist and a lovely brown loaf when baked in metal pans. I loved the chewy texture to the ends of the loaf. All the kids agree, and want to keep eating it. Even my girl that doesn't like bananas loved it. Yeah! I will definitely make it again!

This is TRULY THE BEST Banana Bread recipe I've tried; and I've tried a few. It is versatile and good just as it stands.

This recipe is fantastic! I've made it many times and wouldn't change a thing; except I usually use 3 bananas.
