Reviews for Easy Banana Nut Bread
"This was fast, easy and very tasty. My family enjoyed it so much. I followed the recipe exactly and both loaves rose as they should with a nice banana flavor. It's not a "poor replica" as a reviewer in 2013 remarked..."
"Very nice flavor. My loaves did not rise more than about 2 1/2 inches, so next time I may use smaller pans or put it all into one pan. I did use blueberries in place of nuts, so that may have affected the result. But, for a fast and tasty bread- it is worth making"
"I have made this recipe MANY times and it's always a hit! It's easy and hits all the marks."
"I use a carrot cake or spice cake . It adds more flavor & I add cinnamon & nutmeg, also atopping of butter,brown sugar & cinnamon & nutmeg to top."
"I agree about adding more banana for a stronger flavor. Has the right amount of sweetness . I used my cupcake tins and shortened the bake time."
"This was too cakey, hardly had any banana flavor, fell apart when you cut it. This person should really take the time to make a banana bread from scratch, Its sooo much better than this poor replica."
"Delicious! My entire family loved this bread. I added some chocolate chips and oatmeal to the batter. My picky little son couldn't get enough. This ones a keeper."
"I use basically this same recipe, but mine calls for 5 bananas & three eggs, along with a little cinnamon. It makes for a much more moist recipe, less cake like."
"I used 1 cup pecans and baked it in a 9x13 pan. My family loves it and i make often"
"This is such a great and easy recipe. It definitely makes a great base to play with. I made it today with walnuts instead of pecans. I added in two tablespoons of flaxseed mill, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and an extra banana. Then I baked it in a bundt pan instead of the two loaves. It turned out great. The flaxseed is so healthy for you and adds a nice nutty flavor. It also makes it a bit more brown and a little less yellow."
