    I loved the finished product, very moist and a nice clean flavor. Although I did opt for using a smaller loaf pan for eight loaves reducing the bake time by approx. 7mins. Check for doneness as suggested. I highly recommend them for holiday gifts. Great without the glaze also. Enjoy! JAH, Covington, GA

    I just finished making this recipe and it's the best banana bread ever. I used 2 8x4 inch loafpans and baked an hour and 15 minutes in a gas oven. Instead of fresh canberries, I used 1 cup of dried cranberries. The orange glaze really gives the bread a wonderful taste, but even if you don't add the glaze the bread is still delicious.

    This bread is delicious! The cream cheese, butter & banana make it super moist. For a variation, I ground up walnuts instead of pecans. Yummy! I baked 2 loaves for one hour. This is a keeper. My kids loved it.

    This banana bread is absolutely delicious! You can throw away all other banana bread recipes after trying this one! I've given it to family members and friends who rave about it. I use 1 Cup walnuts and 1 Cup cranberries. Mmmmm - writing this review is making me want to make it right now but the bananas aren't ready yet!

    A friend made this for me last Christmas and we loved it! Now I have the recipe and questioned if anything other than fresh cranberries could be used since they are seasonal and would love to make this during the year. I saw the substitution with dried cranberries- has anyone used anything else like frozen cranberries or maybe jellied cranberry sauce?

    Wonderful and flavorful. I think adding the banana made it moist. I forgot to add the pecans to the batter before baking. So part way through I put them on the top. Flavor was still there but unfortunately it made the center of the loaves ink in the middle. Next time I will remember to add the pecans in the batter. Definitely will go in my keeper recipe file!!!
