Easy and yummy! Family loves it. Discovered pecans were better than walnuts too.

So easy and quick to make! It's a really moist banana bread! I make this recipe all the time!

Quick & easy. I added two additional bananas and one additional egg, as did previous reviewers for more banana taste. The texture is more like cake than bread, but it's a good recipe.

This was fast, easy and very tasty. My family enjoyed it so much. I followed the recipe exactly and both loaves rose as they should with a nice banana flavor. It's not a "poor replica" as a reviewer in 2013 remarked...

Very nice flavor. My loaves did not rise more than about 2 1/2 inches, so next time I may use smaller pans or put it all into one pan. I did use blueberries in place of nuts, so that may have affected the result. But, for a fast and tasty bread- it is worth making

I use a carrot cake or spice cake . It adds more flavor & I add cinnamon & nutmeg, also atopping of butter,brown sugar & cinnamon & nutmeg to top.

I agree about adding more banana for a stronger flavor. Has the right amount of sweetness . I used my cupcake tins and shortened the bake time.

This was too cakey, hardly had any banana flavor, fell apart when you cut it. This person should really take the time to make a banana bread from scratch, Its sooo much better than this poor replica.
