MY REVIEW

This stayed so moist, even after it cooled for days later. I followed it perfectly, but left out the nuts. This recipe is a keeper!

I will reduce the sugar to only 1 cup next time. It was a little sweet for my taste. It fit in my 3 mini loaf pans perfectly. I only added 1/4 cup of milk. It did fine. Didn't see the need for 1 TLBS. ??

Huge hit with the entire family!! We did cut the sugar back by 1/4 cup and will probably reduce it more next time. Like others we also add ed some cinnamon and nutmeg to suit our family's taste.

Thanks Domsmom827 for your suggestions!!! I used butter in place of oil and used part brown sugar part white sugar and it truly IS the BEST EVER banana bread!! I omitted the walnuts too. My husband never liked banana bread until I made this!!! Also I always had trouble with my bread baking all the way thru w/o becoming to done. Not anymore!! :D
