I made this again to try as gluten free. These are my changes: used butter flavored shortening, 3 eggs instead of 2, sorghum flour and added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon with the flour mixture, added 1 teaspoon vanilla extract after the eggs. Also stirred in 2/3 cup chopped pecans in the end. My husband loved it!

A good banana bread. I used butter instead of shortening. If I make it again, I will increase the amount of bananas.

As the name indicates, it's easy...and very delicious!! Substituted butter for the shortening.
