As a toddler, my son loved bananas, so we always had them in the house. We didn't always eat them all before they were too ripe, so we experimented beyond basic banana bread. That’s how we came up with Elvis bread! —Liz Somppi, Greenfield, Wisconsin

"Since I was married by Elvis (or one of his best impersonators!), I could not resist trying this bread. And it did not disappoint! I love the combo of peanut butter, bananas, and chocolate - yum! The only thing I thought it needed was a little "crunch". I added that myself by substituting crunchy peanut butter for the creamy and stirring in 1/2 cup chopped unsalted peanuts along with the chocolate chips."

"Beetlybug check the freshness of your leaveners, that can certainly play a role in how your quickbreads rise."

"Horrible, we had to throw it out, it did not rise at all and had the consistency of a brick."
