I love banana bread. But I've never made it myself.

I need to bookmark one... I end up searching and trying something new every time. Will add this to the list, thanks for sharing it.

Our family really likes the Cooks Illustrated Ultimate Banana Bread.  My daughter, who is 11, makes it as a "treat" whenever her classes have parties, etc.  The content on the Cooks Illustrated site is locked, but here is a link to another copy of the recipe.  Unlike the writer, I think it's much better than most banana breads I've made -- and we don't use nuts.

Still looking for a good one that is grain-free....but I've been lazy about looking.  I hope to find one that uses coconut flour.

Yum!! Sounds delicious.  I haven't made banana bread in a long time now.

 I love banana bread. I have my moms old recipes and I have made hers before.

Banana Bread taste better seasonal (fall/winter) and bakes best when there is a lot of moisture in the air. Because of all the variations, recipe tweaks etc., I would say that it is over rated (good but not great).

For flavor: If your bananas don't ripen to the liquor state, you can use some rum extract but never add more bananas.

For moist bread: Try using Egg Beaters instead of eggs. Don't add more milk.

For a softer texture: Add a small pkg of pudding mix.

No nuts please. If you want the flavor but not the nuts, add 1/4 scant cup of pecan flour or use walnut oil.

Not sweet enough: Top with a glaze.

For the coconut flour question, you might try grinding some dehydrated bananas to add. With all the eggs & butter in the recipe, fresh ripe bananas will never work.
