Reviews for Peanut Butter Banana Bread
"I have made this recipe 4 times as of right now the 4th is in the oven I use 3 or 4 bananas instead of two (I love the extra banana flavor) I also use margarine instead of butter. The texture of the bread is perfect for me mine comes out a bit dense but I also use a small loaf pan. Its perfectly moist for me and after I cut into it I wrap it in foil and keep it at room temp and it stays good for up to two weeks, but I usually eat it before then. My favorite way to enjoy this bread is with a little bit of cream cheese on it. All in all this is a fantastic recipe that I use whenever I have bananas that are about to go bad."
"Seemed a little thick but baked up perfectly. Nice touch of PB."
"sounded good, but was pretty tasteless/bland"
"I personally consider myself a seasoned baker. After trying this recipe, my only disappointment was that there was not enough peanut butter flavor. I used PB2 in the recipe in place of peanut butter or peanut butter spreads. This recipe came out more cake-like, which I enjoyed, and did not have any issues with the texture after baking."
"This sounded like a great combo but flavor was disappointing. I used vegetable oil in place of butter but didn't get the same moist texture as other oil based recipes. This was dry and fell short on flavor. I probably would not make again, though maybe the butter would have worked better. The most reliable quick bread recipes I use call for a 325 over and 1.20 baking time. Would strongly recommend this adjustment to bakers interested in trying this recipe."
