    I also use 3 large very ripe bananas. I have never had a complaint yet and it goes in record time.

    3 very ripe bananas even though the recipe only calls for 2.

    I also substitute applesauce for any fat in the recipe and sprinkle a handfull of mini chocolate chips into the batter.

    Oops, I forgot to mention that I don't add any sugar to the batter either, because chocolate chips add enough sweetness.

    I have yet to have non-moist banana bread.


    Also because the bananas are soooo ripe they have converted a lot to sugar so i half the sugar in the recipe i use.
    I have 4 in my freezer right now waiting for me to be in the mood to make them.

    I've made a lot of banana bread recipes but the best-tasting one was to just use a box of date bread mix, add a few very ripe bananas and a cup of chopped pecans or walnuts, then otherwise bake according to directions. The dates make the bread extra moist.

    I like it with crushed pineapple instead of applesauce. Yummy!

    People who have posted here seem to have gotten it down, but I find that less experienced bakers often put in too much flour because of the way they measure the flour and this will lead to a dry cake. It's important not to scoop out the flour with your measuring cup - that will compact the flour and you could end up with up to 25% more than you think you have. Instead, spoon the flour lightly into your measuring cup - don't jiggle or shake to level it off - overfill it, and then run the straight edge of a knife over the top to remove the excess.

    Especially towards the bottom, so they get kind of crunchy.
