MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 8, 2014

So very yummy! I do wish I'd added some cinnamon, but they are tender and moist..... Doubled the recipe and it made 12 muffins and 2 medium sized loaves.

This bread is really good! I didn't have shortening so I used unsalted butter instead. I also cut sugar down to 2/3 cup and added a little cinnamon. I will definitely be making this again!!

This is now my favorite banana bread. Blueberries make everything better. It is very moist. I don't know what the negative reviews are talking about. There is no yogurt in this recipe.. I made mine in mini loaf and it came out great.

Excellent taste! Very moist and freezes well. I love to make mini loaves to give away to those who would not bake for themselves.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 19, 2014

Wonder if I have a regular sized loaf pan 9 x something? if it would work if I doubled the cooking time? I really wanted a loaf not muffins but do not have the smaller sized pans.
