Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Great banana bread and really liked the pecans. The brown sugar seemed to add a richer flavor to the bread and just not sweetness like regular sugar. Next time will make two loafs and put one in the freezer so we always have one on hand. Made and reviewed for the Pick Me! recipe tag game.

The pecans give this bread an extra special flavor that I loved. My son asked for some to bring home so I split up the loaf to share with him and froze some slices for later on. I spread cream cheese mixed with nuts on top and it was divine!

Great banana bread which I made according to the directions - baking time was right on the mark. I used three bananas but didn't measure the mashed bananas and I used a small pkg of pecans which I crushed with a rolling pin. Great bread! Thanks for sharing!

This is a delicious banana bread and I loved the loads of nuts in it. It gave it lots of flavor and crunch to this really moist bread. I made extras to bring to my sisters for Christmas. It was enjoyed by the whole clan, along with cream cheese on top. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us Luv! Linda
