Dad's Banana Bread

My dad's favorite banana bread is simple, moist and taste wonderful. I believe the recipe is adapted from one of my mom's Betty Crocker cookbooks.

Great flavor! Very versatile. Moist but not greasy. Ran short of reg sugar so subst about 1/4 c brown + 3/4 white. 1 c of sugar was just enough - not too sweet, just perfect. Made 18 baked "donuts". Nice way to portion this yummy bread.

Love loved loved it, I've made this banana bread 4 to 5 times now and it's turned out great each time.

This turned out very well. It made double what I anticipated, though. I doubled it to have two loaves and ended up with four! I had to use mixed mediums, two glass and two nonstick. They both were done at the same time in about 50-55 minutes. I didn't have all purpose but self rising and still added the baking soda, so they rose and fell in the middle, but since I flip them over, no one was the wiser.

Made this tonight, thank you! This was so moist! I made it in a glass dish and non stick glass dish was better.

A 5 star for sure! My family loved it:) I used 3 bananas, put the walnuts on bottom of pan, & a few in the dough. I didn't know if kids would like them but they did.

This recipe is what I've been looking for! The banana nut bread came out moist and delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

This came out great! Much better than a previous recipe I tried which came out dry yuck but this was moister by far

Doesn't beat Mom's or Grandma's (but I don't think anything can), but this is a GREAT banana bread! I made it today and put some it in a muffin tin and the rest (actually still cooking) is in the bread tin. The muffins had great flavor, were moist, and didn't have one overpowering flavor, but a nice combo (I didn't put the walnuts in the oven though. I just mixed them in). I will definitely make this again! It was so good I already at two muffins and it's going to take some extreme willpower to avoid eating the others right away!

Loved it. Would have liked it to be slightly more moist but it was close to perfection

Didnt have buttermilk so I just added a cup of milk to a tsp of lemon juice I'm baking the bread right now and if it's as good as the batter (yes I admit to scarfing down the remaining batter) it will definitely be a new favorite!!

I made this tonight. I used chocolate chips instead of nuts, and used vanilla yogurt instead of buttermilk. Turned out tasty!

This is my "go to" recipe when making Banana Bread. I use sour cream instead of buttermilk and have received great feedback.
