I'm far from a professional baker but I am glued to using your recipe after trying numerous recipes over the years. Your recipe never fails to satisfy the hungry taste-buds of my husband. Also, I recently switched and always make it in a bundt pan, it just gives it that add extra beauty visually.

The best banana bread recipe I ever made! I added chopped walnuts. I did as another person said to do as I baked it one hour and put tin foil over it the last 25 min so it would not burn. Thanks for sharing this recipe. So delicious! Nancy R.

I've never made bread, muffins or anything like that before. So I can say, from a genuine amateur perspective that it is REALLY EASY! Just as good or better than the (expensive) breads from the bakery at the grocery store. Good one!
