    Great Recipe
    This recipe is awesome and SUPER easy and the finished product is amazing.
    Very good (though not as good as the Berry Loaf on this site) and ridiculously easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly except that I always use real butter instead of shortening.
    GREAT!!!!!------I substituted walnuts for another half cup of chocolate chips!!!! It makes it much better, but never the less, WHAT A GREAT RECIPE!!!!!
    I used this recipe for my first Banana Bread experience and it was amazing! I added a cinnamon crumb topping which made it even more delicious.
