I added 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and the family ate one loaf in one sitting. Very easy and not too much mess.

This recipe has got thumbs up......excellent turnout,though i did include walnuts and a dash of cinnamon.It was sooo good that my husband who is not a fan of banana cake had a huge chunk of it...i will definitely make it again and have already passed the recipe on to my family....though i thought that the sugar was a bit tooo much in quantity.will try to substitute half of it with brown sugar next time. keep it up suzanne!!!! and thank you..
