Can I make a suggestion that I beg u to try with this bananas bread?! this recipe is close to mine, which is practically famous with ppl that know me, but try changing the 1 cup of sugar to 1/2 cuz granulated and 1/2 cup brown sugar(little more brown than white). It adds the most beautiful taste! That is pretty much the secret in my banana bread! I've made my recipe with just white sugar once and there is a total taste difference when u have the brown sugar in it! U will never go back to just using white sugar!
