375* for 20min must be for muffins..if using a loaf pan definitely not correct..center was cold n uncooked. I covered w/foil, lowered temp to 350* and baked additional 30min..perfect!

For being sugar free I think this is great. I mean, it's not REAL banana bread so it's not as good but it's more diet friendly. I don't know what the offense is to the frosting. I liked it with the frosting. I've had banana bread with a cream cheese frosting before. This frosting made a lot though, way more than it needed if you are just frosting the top of it. I wondered if it's meant to be more of a spread like when you slice it. That's how I ended up using it once it was obvious there was just way too much to simply be frosting the bread.

Wasn't that impressed unfortunately, I used 1 cup spelt flour, half cup white flour to increase the nutrition. It was very light and moist but not sweet enough, you need very sweet bananas and/or more applesauce. Walnuts definitely would have made it better. A good basic recipe to tweak to your own taste. Followed to the recipe above, mine when finished definitely needed each slice to be spread with butter to make it worthwhile to serve. Not really ideal from a health perspective. But you could have a go with this and make it into something great if you loved banana bread and were brave enough to sub some of the butter with applesauce without losing the moistness that makes this recipe special.
Devo September 24, 2012 COMMENT: Sure would like to have the nutrition facts without the frosting (never heard of frosting on banana bread!) given the only review mentions they chose to forego the icing which leads me to believe they wanted to eliminate unnecessary fat and calories, as I would. Not to mention, why would one want to take something good (banana bread), make it better (replace the sugar with applesauce) , and then add, ...icing?!

Best ever! So moist. I added chopped walnuts and skipped the icing altogether. It will be a family favorite.
