How to make Awesome Banana Nut Bread

February 6, 2008 Jasmine

I don’t have any pictures of the banana bread handy so this is a picture of some banana muffins. I am sure you all know what bread looks like. 😉 Well over Christmas I went searching for an awesome banana nut bread recipe. I stopped by Epicurious and clicked to see what bread had the best rating that was strictly banana nut bread, not one with streussel topping, not one with macadamian nuts, etc. The first one I came to that was such, I immediately clicked the reviews. There were 219 of them!

It is a good thing I like to actually read the reviews instead of just making sure a recipe has a lot of reviews and alot of stars/forks. I didn’t read all of them, maybe just 4 or 5 pages or so, out of 22. But it turns out about 3/4’s of the page down on page 5, “john from Franklin Ma” posted a great recipe he had and for the next 5 pages just about everyone quit reviewing the original posters banana bread and started reviewing his recipe!

Everyone said it was excellent, the best they ever had, etc. So of course I just had to try it. Now I will let you know this is the first banana bread I have actually ever made so I have nothing to compare it to. My whole family loved it, I have made it now about 3 times. Those other reviewers thought it was really, really great too! SO if you are looking for a banana bread recipe, or just want to try a new one out, I don’t think you can go wrong with this one.

I have tried this with all purpose flour and also with half and half. They were both really good!
