"This is a wonderful, moist bread and I included 1/2 tsp. cinnamon as others had mentioned. I think the amount of sugar is perfect! I will definitely make this recipe again."
"We have a banana tree and this was one of the recipes I tried with the new batch of bananas. It was really moist and not too sweet"
"Miam ! really good and easy, I will do it with my students !"
"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!!"
