    Awesome! Light, fluffy and very moist. It is delicious and easy to make too. This is now going to be my go to banana bread recipe. As usual I used less than half the sugar and I loved it.
    It turned out great although I will add some spice to it next time and maybe some nuts

    i love the recipe but i always add at least a 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1/8 teaspoon of allspice and 1/8 teaspoon of cloves and a handful or 2 of walnuts. the other thing ive done is instead of putting the spices straight in make it into a swirl with a bit of butter and brown sugar after all the ingredients have been folded together

    Great. Definitely make a swirl from butter, brown sugar and cinnamon, and barely fold it in at the very end. I also put 1 tbsp cinnamon in the dry ingredients.

    I have used this recipe for years (passed down from my grandma)! I will use sour cream and vanilla yogurt interchangeably, however, I decrease the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup and omit vanilla when using yogurt. Also, I bake in muffin cups instead of loaf pan reducing the cooking time to 20 minutes.

    I usually use a little milk and vinegar, instead the sour cream sounds delish. Of course I noticed after I tossed it in the oven that I put 1 teaspoon of Baking soda and a 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder instead of paying attention. O well I’ll know in an hour.

    Easy to make and enjoyed by both my 10 yo and 12 yo kids and my husband. I go lighter in the sugar and replace some of white flour with 2/3 whole wheat flour (and sometimes part flax meal) with equally great results.
