There is a little story behind the name of this bread... When I was working on the recipe, a friend of mine was pregnant. I brought her a loaf of banana bread every week for about 6-7 months until the baby was born. I was going to try like heck to help make this a healthy baby!

Devin was born on February 7th, 1998 a very healthy 9 lbs. 10 ounces! I was there at the hospital and got to see Christine hold him for the first time. What a wonderful experience...

Today Devin is celebrating his first birthday. It is with gratitude that I post this recipe; grateful am I to have shared in his birthing experience and grateful to see him today walking and playing.

Happy Birthday Devin! Glad you liked the bread! :) Ryan

Great bread! I add an extra 1/2 cup chopped nuts to counteract the moistness. Excellent stuff... Crowd favorite for sure...

This is a great recipe. I like lemon zest so I added some to this just for a kick. The moistness in this bread is perfect. I rated it a 5.

Sorry to bother you but I happened on this site and was reading Devin's Delight Banana Bread recipe and other people's comments.I would like to try it but I don't know what is "1 stick margerine" or it's equivalent.I can work with metric or imperial measurements but this has me beat.I've never heard of it.Can you help?Thanks

1 stick margarine means just that. Its the whole stick of margarine right out of the package. The margarine usually comes 4 to a box, so you would use 1 whole stick. hopes this help you.

I only have 3 ripe bananas, how do you think that this will effect the recipe?

Excellent, with or without the nuts. I melted the margarine which made for easier mixing.

This is the best banana bread ever! I never thought I'd taste one better than my mother's, but this one has it beat hands down.

This bread was so good! It would even be good without the nuts! But it just turned out delicious and looked great, too!

This is pretty much the best recipe i have ever used and I have made a lot of banana bread. They use less butter and sugar than a lot of other bakers!! LOVE IT :)
