CHEF COMMENTS

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

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. February 27, 2004

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 April 1, 2004

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. April 20, 2004

Excellent, with or without the nuts. I melted the margarine which made for easier mixing. April 24, 2005
