Whenever I pass a display of bananas in the grocery store, I can almost smell the wonderful aroma of this bread. It really is good! —Gert Kaiser, Kenosha, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 12, 2014

OMG...this is the best banana bread ever! So very flavorful and moist. As suggested, I used 3 bananas and did not have buttermilk, so used whipped cream & few dollops of butter. I was contemplating adding the spices & brown sugar suggested in the other reviews, but do not want to alter such a perfect, yummy recipe.

Fantastic! I was even able to make this in a gluten free version for my fiancé who is gluten intolerant. Tasted amazing!

I'm not even a huge fan of banana bread, but this was just delicious. I left out the nuts since we didn't have them in the house. I will be saving this and using it as my standby for banana bread.
