Notes about this recipe

  • aeader on May 14, 2014

    I'm always skeptical of a recipe name like "best" anything...but this was delicious. I'm not sure I'd say it was the best I've ever had but I will definitely make it again. It was very moist and the banana flavor really came through, probably because there were no spices (cinnamon, etc) in the recipe. I used a dark nonstick pan and reduced the oven temp by 25 degrees and used the full baking time of 1hr 20 min. Next time I will probably reduce the time by about 10 minutes as it got a little darker (although not dry at all) than I liked. (I had checked it at 1 hour with a toothpick and it wasn't done yet.) I also liked that this didn't contain a lot of butter/oil but the buttermilk gave it a moist and tender crumb.
