  1. My kids have an unspoken house rule. NEVER eat the last 3 bananas. They know that if there are 3 browning bananas, I will always make banana bread! It is funny when one of them comes in to see only two bananas hanging on the holder. "Hey! Who ate a banana?" I will try the butterscotch chips in my next loaf. I usually use mini chocolate chips, but butterscotch chips sound delicious! Thanks!
  2. I made two loaves of this bread a few days ago and I am making more today. The butterscotch gives it a wonderful flavor! I did leave out the nutmeg as I don't care for the taste of it and this time I am going to flourthe butterscotch chips as they wanted to sink to the bottom of the bread. This is a winner!!

    I made this bread and everyone loved it! However, the butterscotch likes to sink to the bottom and makes the sides very dark. I see someone had the same problem and is going to try tossong them in flour. Do you think this will do the trick? I was thinking of chopping them up some so they wouldn't be. So big and hopefully not sink and burn. I hope you read and reply to your comments. This is the first time I'm post a comment. I've made several of your recipes and theyare all great!

    I chose this recipe for our bake swap day. I doubled the recipe and made 3- 8x3 loaves. I added more butterscotch as I just used 2 full bags for the double recipe. Amazing doesn't really describe this recipe. My husband, who doesn't like butterscotch, declared it the best banana bread he ever tasted. In fact, after the first double batch I made another 3 loaves (for family) and my husband doesn't want to give them out! For those that don't like butterscotch I still recommend it. The butterscotch gives it an incredible flavor, but not exactly a butterscotch taste. 5 stars. I couldn't be more impressed with this recipe and everyone loved it!
