Nutrition information and baking times vary due to variations in baking pans and ingredient brands used.
Be sure not to overmix the batter.
1 cup of mashed bananas tends to be 3 small or 2 large whole bananas. Do not use more than 3 or the bread will be too dense.
Check the pan about 10 minutes before the baking time is up. If the top appears to be browning too quickly, move the pan lower one rack in the oven.
