We loved the addition of orange marmalade. The bread was moist and delish. Made for I Recommend Tag.

Call me picky, but not many recipes get five stars from me. This one? AMAZING. I decreased the brown sugar just a touch (because I used raw unfiltered honey of a variety that's particularly sweet) and replaced half the white flour with whole wheat. I had apricot-almond jam, and the almond gave it a haunting, amazing aroma. :) I also tweaked the spices (1 t. vanilla extract, 1 t. cinnamon, 1/4 t. nutmeg, 1/2 t. cardamom, 1/2 t. ginger) because I wanted something festive, and added pistachios. While that sounds like a lot of tweaking, the base recipe was a joy too. This is now my go-to recipe. Baked up brown and perfect, and wonderfully moist, though it took 10min longer in my oven (which may, of course, just be my oven). Try this! You will not regret it. :)

Cinnamon,marmalade and honey is something my banana bread didn't see before. A nice change. We really enjoyed this.

A nice banana bread. I made the batter exactly as written with no substitutions, but then turned the batter into 24 mini muffins (cooked for 20 minutes) plus 8 regular size muffins (cooked for 25 minutes). They are nice and crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. . .not as moist as I was expecting but I definitely liked it. Thanks for sharing! Made for RECIPE SWAP Jan 2010.

Deliciously moist banana bread. The honey and apricot jam lend flavor and contribute to the moistness of this bread. This recipe is perfect as is. No need for tweaking. My family practically inhaled this for breakfast this morning. Thanks!
