    I didn't have cinnamon, but I did add a little allspice, and it tastes good. It isn't too sweet, which I like and the bread is soft and warm. Thank you for this recipe!

    I have used this recipe a few times. My first loaf was a bit dry and lacking flavor. I tried it again, with a few adjustments. My wife loved it! Like most, I used 3 bananas, then added some nutmeg and reduced the cooking time. Turned out fabulous!!!

    Perfect recipe! I used a bit more cinnamon and added some nutmeg. I have also used this recipe to make muffins. Baked them at 425 for 12 minutes and they came out great!

    Waaaay too dry and overall not a great recipe. I suggest recipes that use at least 3 bananas. I didn’t have canola oil so I used coconut oil but I don’t think that was my main reason why it was so dry. I highly recommend butter rather than any oil for banana bread.

    Was good. Could do without cinnamon but that’s a personal preference.

    Prettt easy recipe. Followed recipe to the letter. Was a little dry but otherwise the flavor was good. Just add a little cream cheese to the piece while it’s warm and you’re all good.

    This is a delicious, and very simple banana bread. Cooking time listed was just a little long. I would also add some nuts for texture.

    Overall, super tasty. I did make a small blunder by subbing sea salt for table salt, but that was my fault ofc. Excellent recipe all in all

    Very good! Super easy, moist, and delicious! I wanted to use up some leftover bananas and had 4 large sized. I simply doubled all ingredients and took my chances and it worked out wonderfully! This doesn't always work with all recipes! 😊
