Made the recipe exactly as written. My husband and I agree this is the most delicious banana bread we have ever tasted. Just made another loaf for a friend.
I think the fresh grated nutmeg was a really nice touch. I actually had 2 websites open- this one and Epicurious. Got the ingredients for Epicurious version and somehow ended up making this one. So good- made 2 loaves and sent one home with our dinner guests because they loved it so much. Still some leftover ripe bananas so tomorrow or the next day, we will try the Epicuious version and compare the two.
Love the suggestion of using sour cream in lieu of butterI would like to try that!I made a few changes only because of what I had in my pantry and it worked.1. I used 1c white flour 1c whole wheat pastry flour2. I used all three of the suggested bananas3. I only used 1/2c sugar.4. cinnamon instead of nutmeg (personal preference)5. Chocolate chips! (mostly because I wanted this as an after dinner treat:)6. I omitted walnuts because I didn't have any....I am curious to know if anyone has used zucchini ???
