REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
WOW! This is a winner. I had some very ripe fruit that I need to do something with, and I'm so glad I did this. My family and I very much enjoyed this banana bread. I also used only half the recommended white sugar, which worked good for me. I also didn't bake it for quite as long as asked, probably like 45 min. (note, the mix looks really thick when you are done, don't let that throw you off though, it bakes fine.)

This recpe was easy to follow & I baked it exactly as stated except I added a it extra nuts. My hubby & I both thought it was fabulous. It was very tasty & moist. I especially liked the fact that it took fresh apples & bananas. I would say it's a HIT at my house. And I bake alot and thisone was a keeper & do again.

I used two bananas and it turned out well--very moist. Made it twice in a week--the second time was for a potluck and it disappeared! Very nice combination of flavors.

I found a recipe the same as this a few years back. I've made it every year since and everytime I do, everyone LOVES it! I do tend to use more banana than apples though. It still tastes awesome!

I altered this recipe by including only 1 1/2 c. flour rather than the recommended 2 cups. My personal preference is for less "floury" bread. I served this bread at Thanksgiving and everyone loved it! Great recipe!
