I had never made banana bread before tonight. I was looking for a recipe to make for my boyfriend and his mother and I decided on this one. They both LOVED it! For never making any type of banana bread before I think that was great. It was very very good. I was a bit worried because after cooking it for 1 hour the middle was still very doughy but at exactly 1 hour and 20 minutes it was perfectly done. Put a little butter on the middle and it's perfect. Great recipe!

I've been using the same banana bread recipe of my mom's for 6-7 years. I looked on food.com to find something different. I was thrilled to find this recipe that would use the rest of my buttermilk before it soured. <br/>My husband recently bought self-rise flour instead of all-purpose flour because it's cheaper. I've done my best to modify my recipes to use the self-rise flour. We've actually been enjoying the difference in the consistency. All that to say, I used a little more buttermilk to insure that it was still moist. It was still a tad dry, but that could still be the difference in flour, idk. I also added 2 tsp cinnamon for extra flavor (our bananas around here in the midwest have been lacking in flavor lately). The cinnamon was a perfect addition. I would recommend not eating it with butter; it tastes better warm, and on it's own.

Wow, a delicious yet lightweight banana bread . . not heavy like most banana bread recipes out there! A keeper!! Not only was the flavor one 'to cry for', but the smell throughout the house while baking was amazing. Thank you, Juenessa!

This lovely banana bread turned out great just as you advertised, Juenessa ... moist & full of the banana flavor. I did not have any of the optional nuts, so left them out & otherwise made it just as written. There was a moment early on in the baking when I thot it might overflow my loaf pan, but all was fine. Mine was nicely done 10 min earlier than expected, but my convection oven often cooks hot & fast. DH is in Vienna for a wk, so I indulged myself w/2 generous taste tests & froze the rest for his return. It seemed only fair to share this yummy treat w/him & I am sure he will be grateful you shared the recipe w/us. :-)

This sounds like the Banana bread recipe I am looking for, sounds delicious - I'm going to make it - right now - Does it need lashings of butter when I eat it?
