Robin's Story

I was given this recipe in Culinary School by one of my Professors, and I can't get enough....This is her written biography...'This is my mom's dense, excellent and definitely unhealthy banana nut bread recipe. This is great at parties, but hazardous at home. Use any type of fat in place of the butter, such as shortening or oil. It works with brown or white sugar". I followed the recipe to the exact measurements, and I will have to admit that I almost ate the whole loaf at one sitting. HAZARDOUS!

This made the Test Kitchen smell amazing! The dense, nutty bread is oh-so-moist and will win over even the non-banana lovers in your life.

3/4 c

Best banana bread I've ever made! The third time I made it I added about 1.5 tsp of vanilla. I think it added a little depth to the flavor. I leave the nuts out - my kids aren't big nut fans. People ask me for this recipe after they have some - the best compliment I can get - thank you Robin DuPree :-)

This was the best banana bread. I have used lots of different recipes online and never thought they were the best. This is though. Yes its bad for you but I don't care I still ate it ALL!
