Excellent! I tried the recipe back on 12/13/1991 from the "Favorite Amish Recipes" by Ken & Goldie Bontrager. Another cookbook that my husband bought for me while traveling in Amish country in Iowa. and the family loved it. Now throughout the years, Daughter Sophia and even Antonio (our son in a couple of occasions) have improvised the recipe by adding chocolate chips, any dried fruit (cranberries, raisins), nuts (almonds) or shredded coconut to their likings. We also tinker with the flour by mixing flax meal flour, almond or any other type of flour with the regular whole wheat flour. The texture of the banana bread is grainy but with the right amount of density. And oh so sweet! You'd want more. It's cheap and easy to make.
Mix well. Put in loaf and bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.
Depending on oven, I bake mine in 50 minutes. You can double the recipe and divide the batter into two loaf pans. Make it your own and you can add walnuts and chocolate chips too.
