Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


very good

I absolutely loved it! It stayed moist because I kept it covered. Though there was a lot of extra batter at the end, I had enough to fill another pan!

I have had better. The cinnamon was little overpowering. Not as moist as I like. I will keep using my usual recipe I think.

Not low-fat

It sounds good, but it is a lot of calories!

Banana Nut bread`

I made this today and it is very good , and I would make it again ,But cut the recipe in Half as it is a lot of bread.

Fun and easy to make

I made this bread but I did end up changing some of it and I don't think that it was for the best. I used olive oil and I halved the recipe. It was kind of crispy on the outside and not cooked too well on the very middle top. But what did cook well was delicious.
