Deliciously sweet banana bread with plenty of vanilla flavour. The walnuts add a lovely texture.
Superb. Like others, I always sprinkle brown sugar on top. One thing I'd note to anyone making a banana bread for the first time: Trust your instincts! Bananas vary, so if yours aren't very sweet, add more sugar. If yours are especially moist, add a bit of extra flour (the finished dough should be like a thick muffin batter). This recipe is forgiving enough to work even without these alterations, but a sense of adventure really helps take it up a notch. - 07 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
For probably 40 years I have made a banana bread with a recipe I got from a wonderful home ec teacher which included sour cream. Since I didn't have sour cream, I made this recipe. This is good, but more cake-like...not nearly as rich or dense as my old favorite banana bread which I will continue to make. The sour cream must be what makes the difference! - 27 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Absolutely delicious! It was my first banana nut bread, and it was easy and turned out perfect. I used three bananas and about 1 1/2 cups walnuts, and I had to bake it a little longer, about 1hour and 20 minutes. I will definitely make this again! Big plus: no need for fancy ingredients, I could make it with what I had at home. - 11 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
