Reviews for Maple Walnut Banana Bread
"Made this up because I was overrun with ripe bananas. Searched high and low for my loaf pan, couldn't find it, so ended up using a 9x9 square pan instead. Made streusel with 1/2c white whole wheat flour, 1/2c maple sugar and about 4T butter. Nuts omitted due to allergies."
"Made this recipe and it turned out great! I used vanilla extract instead of maple and I added yellow food coloring, still fabulous!"
"I made this yesterday. I used vanilla extract & egg substitute, it came out perfect!! nice and light and golden. I omitted the nuts on top and put them in the batter instead. Excellent for company to :) you can make it into muffins as well ."
"Very good, i added pineapple with the recipe and turned out great. we dont have maple flavoring so i used vanilla instead. Awesome!"
"Two thumbs up! Didn't have maple flavoring, so used 1 Tablespoon maple syrup."
"This banana bread was so yummy and moist. I added a twist seeing how my family love walnuts I added about 1/2 cups of finely chopped walnuts in the bread besides the ones on top. Will definetly be making this banana bread again real soon."
"This was a good as every other banana bread recipe I've tried but I didn't think it was any better. Also, it overflowed over the edge of my 8x4 pan. If I make it again, I will be sure to use a 9x5 pan instead."
"was downloading some recipes into my TOH recipe saver and alongside was some recipes, this came up, and being I had some extra soft bananas, this caught my eye - well, this is to die for!!! so flavorful, moist and just plain good!Definately will be in my "favorite box" and found a good use for my bananas - might try using them in muffin tins the next time/that way, I can freeze some - being there is just the 2 of us."
