    Great recipe. I do everything except add sugar on top, however next time I’ll use white sugar to see how it comes out!

    Turned out great! Only thing I did different is I didn’t cook it as long because the bottom was starting to over cook. What we didn’t eat after it first came out turned into a great breakfast for the hubby that week!

    Fabulously awesomeness I added just a swirl of maple syrup and crushed corn flakes and did I say yummy? OMG bake a little under the 65 minutes more like 50. Depends on oven just keep an eye on it cuz the moist the merrier! Share it up and give it a twist of your own!

    The recipe is very easy to follow. The banana bread turned out pretty good except it was not sweet at all even though I followed the recipe exactly using 3/4 cup brown sugar. Any thoughts on what I might have done wrong?

    Great! I added lemon zest to the mashed bananas and nutmeg to the cinnamon. I also substituted the butter for "I can't believe..." And used about two thirds of the amount of sugar as white sugar because I didn't have enough brown.

    Tastes great. I added 1/2 c of pecans instead of walnuts. And a a bit more vanilla and cinnamon but those are things I like. Had to cook a bit longer as my 5 bananas came out a bit more than the recipe called for. Just checked the doneness every 5-10 minutes after the initial 65 minutes.

    so good! i could have taken 5 minutes off of the baking time, i think but that's gonna vary oven to oven. it looked and tasted amazing. I will definitely make this again.

    Awesome! Mine only needed 60 minutes, but it turned out perfectly. I definitely recommend adding the sugar on top, and eating it with honey or jam
