    I used 2 1/2 bananas that came to 1 1/3 cups of mashed to make this bread, and the sugar I used was Sugar in the Raw organic cane sugar. The bread itself turned out to be a smaller loaf than what I've made in the past, and it was easy to make because of the few ingredients it called for. It is especially good toasted with butter because the outside gets crunchy. I would definitely make this again! Thanks, Joy!
