Cooking Tip: Make sure your bananas are overripe, with lots of brown spots, for this recipe, otherwise your loaf will be lacking delicious banana flavor and sweetness. Also, please don’t use an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan…it’s too small and the batter won’t cook properly. To accurately determine the size of your pan, always measure inside edge to inside edge, so you don’t include the thickness of the pan in your measurement.

I was so inspired by this recipe and I had everything on hand to try it.sadly I discovered the recipe incorrectly states once cup of flour when it should actually say 2 c whole wheat AND all purpose flour! Also my pan was exactly 9x 5 and my batter with just one cup of flour filled it to the top! So this recipe could actually make two smaller loaves filled 2/3 full so that it bakes properly! I love Greta’s recipes and will try again to make this so it turns out just like hers!
