Delicious! I made it exactly as stated, only I let it raise for a little over 2 hours. And i covered with foil about two thirds of the way through while baking as i did not want it to overbrown. Being a yeast bread it is not as heavy as a quick bread, but it has the same great flavor. A melt in your mouth banana flavor. This is great toasted as well.

This was delicious and easy! Makes a dense and moist "egg style" bread with nice banana flavor! Mixed this Chrismas Eve and refrigerated overnight before allowing to rise Christmas morning for an hour or so before baking.I believe if we would have allowed to raise and bake immediately the bread would have been lighter, but we enjoyed it as it was! We followed the ingredients except for omitting the nuts. I loved that this was a "no knead" bread which saved time and effort! It makes delicious toast and may try making french toast with this banana-y bread! Less sweet and heavy than banana quick bread, and more versatile as well,!
