    Amazing! So delicious and easy to follow.

    I left it in the oven for another 15 min after the hour and it turned out perfect.
    This is my new favorite banana bread recipe! Everyone loved it. I used plain yogurt instead of buttermilk as suggested and added some chocolate chips. I could see this recipe holding up well to customization and I think I’d love to try it with applesauce to reduce the amount of butter

    So tasty! I added cinnamon and baked in cupcake cases for 30-40 min. If you are using cupcake cases this recipe makes 12 😊

    Turned out great. Definitely should mention that this type of doughy bread needs to be tented with foil midway through baking. If not, it'll be mushy on the inside and seem uncooked. I also baked it for 70 minutes instead of an hour.

    After 1.5 hours in the oven, it looked like not baked... maybe it was my oven, maybe not.

    Made four mini loaves, substituted caster for granulated sugar and used non fat milk with apple cider vinegar instead of buttermilk. Used what was on hand. Cooked the mini loaves for 45 mins. Family enjoyed and have had requests for more. Will make again soon!

    Gorgeous. Was a bit dubious at an hour cooking and did lower it in the oven, no better test than a 7-year old saying it was the best

    Excellent! I used two packs of vanilla sugar instead of vanilla and reduced the sugar.

    Amazing. Soft, moist and very tasty. A hit with my family. Took a good 50 mins to cook in a fan forced oven.

    As always very tasty, depending on banana size, you only need to use 3 large ones, best use very over ripe ones for more of a banana flavour
    Deliciously moist banana bread. Made it several times already

    Great recipe. I decreased the amount of sugar to max. 100g - it depends on how sweet the bananas are, sometimes I use only 50g of sugar (i'm using dark cane sugar) and it's still sweet enough. Instead of plain flour I'm using spelt flour and the taste is still great, also the consistence is perfect!!! 😊😊
