I knew I'd like this one after reading the ingredients, and I was right. It's very tropical tasting. The quick bread has a nice crumb to it, without being too dense. The only change I made was to add some rum extract. Wow that was a good idea. I would like to use macadamia nuts next time. I will make this again soon!
