"This was the worst banana bread I have ever tasted. It is dry and flavorless. I did not even throw it outside for the birds to eat for fear they would choke on it."

"I LOVE this recipe. Made it a hundred times( literally!!!!) & it always works. I use 3 bananas. So easy. Lived in the Caribbean 4 1 year & all the banana bread recipes used butter. This is the only 1, using oil that tastes as good as the traditional butter ones. Thanku 2 whoever created this recipe xxx"
