"I doubled it to bake in a regular bundt pan, subbed chocolate chips for the walnuts. Came out nice and moist!"

"This was very good although I made it in a loaf pan because I didn't have a small bundt pan. I'd definitely double next time as my husband ate almost half of it he said it was so good. I think the noted 16 servings should be changed to 8 servings, at least for me, more like 4 servings for my husband. :-) Nice change for using ripe bananas."
