Didn't they reduce the liquid?
I use defrosted, frozen bananas. They lose liquid in the freezer and shrink, so when I measure my banana mush, it usually takes 5 frozen bananas to equal 2-3 fresh ones, by volume.
Next time I make banana bread I will reduce and use the banana liquid. I will make sure I don't have more liquid than the recipe calls for.
