MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 1, 2015

"I reduced the sugar to 1 cup as per suggestions. I reduced the oil by half and replaced it with more banana and some applesauce. I also replaced almost all the flour with whole wheat flour. A healthier version that still tasted great - the kids loved it!"

"Great recipe, it is a bit sweeter than I would like. Since this is my husband's favorite I'm making it for the second time this week. I did add a dash of cinnamon."

"Amazing! I added cinnamon and an extra banana. I am going to get mini loaf pans, and then double the recipe then make it. I will say how it goes!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 1, 2015

"I read every review and then made my version. I added 1-tsp. cinnamon and nutmeg to

the flour. 1-cup sugar; 3-bananas; 1-stk. melted butter; 1-tsp banana extract. Baked it
70-minutes. Goes without saying, this is absolutely the best ever banana bread. My husband loved it so much, before going to bed I sliced a piece, buttered it and left it
for him to toast next morning. Have bought more bananas to ripen for another loaf."
