This is a pretty good recipe. I needed to use up some bananas which I had frozen. They were overtaking my freezer!
I doubled the recipe which yielded 2 loaves and a dozen muffins.
I made my own buttermilk, instead of buying it. It worked well.
Adding a few additional ingredients made this recipe even better. I grated 3 fresh carrots, and used about 1 cup of raisins. Also I used about a cup of walnuts, as the recipe suggested.
The muffins needed to bake for about 20 minutes. I have an insulated muffin pan. The cooking time may vary for a regular muffin pan. Also, the baking time for my 9 x 5 loaf pans, which are also insulated, was only 1 hour, instead of 1 1/4 hours as the recipe states. It may be because they are insulated.
It was moist and not too sweet.
Also, the list of ingredients, with the exception of buttermilk, are pretty common to most households, so you might get away with running to the grocery store!
Thumbs up Betty Crocker!
