What a fabulous banana bread! One of the best I've tried, thank you for sharing :) I made mine without the nuts, and it was delicious. Made up a batch of cream cheese frosting to top it with - this one was a winner!

These kinds of breads are my favorite!!! I would rather have a good banana bread or Zucchini bread than a cake any day. Zucchini is my favorite,but banana runs a close second. Tans for a great recipe,Darlene
