    Great. Definitely make a swirl from butter, brown sugar and cinnamon, and barely fold it in at the very end. I also put 1 tbsp cinnamon in the dry ingredients.

    I have used this recipe for years (passed down from my grandma)! I will use sour cream and vanilla yogurt interchangeably, however, I decrease the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup and omit vanilla when using yogurt. Also, I bake in muffin cups instead of loaf pan reducing the cooking time to 20 minutes.

    Turned out awesome. Added chopped pecans and chocolate chips. I’ve made it twice now. Didn’t have sour cream, so I used buttermilk. Turned out beautifully!!

    I usually use a little milk and vinegar, instead the sour cream sounds delish. Of course I noticed after I tossed it in the oven that I put 1 teaspoon of Baking soda and a 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder instead of paying attention. O well I’ll know in an hour.

    Easy to make and enjoyed by both my 10 yo and 12 yo kids and my husband. I go lighter in the sugar and replace some of white flour with 2/3 whole wheat flour (and sometimes part flax meal) with equally great results.

    Very good. I added poppy seeds and walnut pieces. I used about 3/4 the sugar and it was still too sweet; will cut back next time. Also used a bundt pan which worked pretty well.

    This recipe IS so easy to make and I just happened to have all the ingredients in my pantry and fridge. I added a quarter cup of semi-sweet choc chips for a little fun. Bread comes out beautiful and texture is light. This is now my favorite banana bread recipe!
