I've made this more than a dozen times. It's a superior recipe. Here's an amazing variation: add 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut. No adjustments required. Grease pan with coconut oil. It's outstanding! FYI - if you don't have buttermilk, add a few drops of lemon juice to regular milk.
Excellent! SGrishka continues to set the bar with clearly written, very complete and delicious recipes. Never tried buttermilk in a banana bread, but we had that and ripe bananas left over. That, plus a rainy Sunday, made this a perfect choice. Kids love it.
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.
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.
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!
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!!
