    I used two ripe bananas and one new as that was all I had, I have tried others but as i am not usually a big fan of banana bread i dont make it very often, only for my son. But this one I actually liked myself. Very good - only down side didn't rise very well in a 2lb tin even when used 1tsp baking powder.  -  10 May 2017


    This was easy to make and the kids loved it- wanted more!😊 I found it too sweet so 1/2 the sugar  -  15 Dec 2016


    I used 2 1/2 bananas that came to 1 1/3 cups of mashed to make this bread, and the sugar I used was Sugar in the Raw organic cane sugar. The bread itself turned out to be a smaller loaf than what I've made in the past, and it was easy to make because of the few ingredients it called for. It is especially good toasted with butter because the outside gets crunchy. I would definitely make this again! Thanks, Joy!  -  22 Apr 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
