This bread is very moist and cake-like. I would have like a little more banana flavor, but that would have probably made it too heavy. I enjoyed it!

Hi! What size pan does this call for? Thanks!

I made a mistake by writing buttermilk instead of yogurt.:)I corrected! hope you will enjoy this cake. :)

The directions call for mixing in the buttermilk, but I don't see it on the ingredients list. Was this added in error or am I missing something? This looks very good and I can't wait to give it a shot.

I've been meaning to make this recipe (from my long list), anyway, I feel she probably means us to use the yogurt she has listed...should work. :)

Great. Thank you. I made it this afternoon with the yogurt and it smells great.

This is the best recipe I have ever discovered. After baking it for the first time four years ago, I haven't gone a single day without eating it. The moistness of the bread is unparalleled and the vibrant, flavorful mixture of bananas and peanut butter is a truly addictive treat. I highly recommend this recipe - it just may change your life.

Is that a variation Larry Leimbrock? Do you add the peanut butter in addition to the other ingredients or substitute something? How much peanut butter? Sounds interesting.
