  1. I've made several banana bread recipes here and I always come back to this one, it is a wonderful standard recipe that you can build upon and customize to your liking. A few pointers... This is a DENSE bread, the last one I made I actually weighed on my kitchen scale and it came to - Read more ...
  2. I have to say that if the bread seems dry and dense, chances are you stirred it too much, which is easy to do without even thinking about it. With sweet breads and muffins, you should always just stir to moisten. Never over-do it or else you will end up with a drier and denser - Read more ...
  3. This recipie was great I only subsituted somthing else for each of the ingredients listed. I hope the rest of the reviewers will take a hint...these reviews should be for the recipie listed not some concotion you made up...submit that as a seperate recipie if you would like but don't review it under one that - Read more ...
  4. Excellent recipe!! I added 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts and brushed the top with a mixture of 1tbs water and 3 tbs brown sugar for a sweet crunch on top.
  5. This banana bread was very moist, despite the fact that I didn't have enough bananas (I compensated for the remaining quantity with some applesauce). Five large bananas yielded less than 2 cups, mashed so I thought it would be helpful to note that this recipe would probably require 6 or 7 bananas.
  6. Hi there! I'm not a big fan of banana bread, but we had three or four bananas wasting away in the pantry so I decided to give this bread a shot. I replaced all the eggs with EggBeaters, used whole wheat flour instead of white, instead of 2/3 the butter I used apple sauce, and - Read more ...
  7. Great recipe! Like others, I also added some spice (vanilla, cinnimon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice). I wanted to make muffins, so I put the batter into a muffin tin sprayed lightly with Pam. At 325 degrees they were done in about 25 minutes! The batter yeilded 12 good sized muffins that were moist and delicious! - Read more ...
  8. I made this last year and it was awful. When it came out of the oven, it looked like a brick and my kids made a face. It was unpleasantly soft on the inside. I tried the recipe again today and followed the advice of other reviewers by adding 1 t vanilla, doing a combo - Read more ...
  9. Very good. I altered the recipe to make it more healthy--used 1 1/2 c. flour + 1/2 c. whole wheat pastry flour; 1/4 c. butter + 1/4 c. plain applesauce; 1/2 c. brown sugar; added 1 tsp. cinn. and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. Took awhile for it to bake--about 70 min. Good way to use up - Read more ...
