    I think its the best banana bread i've ever had and I've been looking for 45 years. It's moist and is not overpowered by too much banana. I love it. Thank you

    Contrary to rumor it's not actually the colour of the banana that makes any loaf of banana bread dark, in fact, you can use only moderately ripe bananas and still have a dark loaf, if you extend the baking time and lower the temp. Bananas contain gasses that release when exposed to warmth, hence why a banana left in a lunch bag on a school bus will go black by the time your child's field trip is over! I always bake my loaves at this temp, 275 degrees and the amount of time here, 2.5 hours, is exactly right. Try this with non-ripe bananas and see, the same colour will occur, however you may not have that rich flavour that comes from an aged banana, where the gasses have had a chance to establish in advance. :)
    Delightful recipe though! Thank you :)

    Love this recipe. The molasses remark is no exaggeration, this stuff comes out so dark it almost looks like chocolate. So tasty!

    I like the idea of this bread being so dark. I'm going to give my hand to baking this weekend. Hook me up with some b.b.bread. Oh ya.
