I made this with my 3 year old students today and it turned out amazing! No nuts in our bread though. The kiddos loved it and so did my fellow teachers who got to have a taste. Even printed out the recipe and sent it home with my kiddos.

Instead of putting foil on top, I put a pan of water under the banana bread and it never burns or cracks on top! I also do that with meatloaf and it works. This recipe is awesome and we all love it!

You definitely don't need to butter it. Very good just by itself.

I am constantly trying to find a banana bread recipe. So many failed recipes. Doesn't rise, raw in the middle or dense and bland. I decided to try one more time... when I came across your recipe. I doubled it, as I had 6 bananas in the freezer to use. I also used my food processor. I have to tell you... ITS THE ONE!!!! It made two perfect loaves. Thank you so much, I finally found a keeper!

Very good! I just made this recipe with my grandma and it smells (and tastes) very good. It's cooking as I type. Only thing different I did was too add cinnamon.

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.
