    Loved this bread for breakfast. I didn't even need the glaze but it was good too.

    To die for! This never lasts more than a day in my house. I add some streusel on top to add some crunchiness.

    I also forgot the lemon rind--didn't even miss it! For a more health-conscious recipe I altered the following with AMAZING results: I replaced 1/2 flour with wheat flour, added 1/2 teaspoon baking powder to compensate for the heaviness of the wheat flour, used 1 whole egg plus 2 egg whites rather than egg substitute, and replaced the sour cream with nonfat plain yogurt. And I didn't do the glaze at all. Best banana bread I've ever tried!

    Love, love, love this recipe!! I've made it as written and have since modified with great results. I now always cut the sugar in half, do half wheat flour and make them into muffins and bake 20-25 min. (oh, I also always use frozen blueberries) I have also substituted some quick oats and cornmeal for some of the flour and it turned out wonderful!
