I pretty much followed the recipe on down, taking your hint & including a good portion of dried cranberries & orange zest (I do love that combo!) & it worked out well for me, & I did bake it for a full 70 minutes (actually a couple of minutes over that)! Loved the flavor & texture, & when I put a thin layer of sweet potato butter on a slice, it was outstanding! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This bread worked out quite nicely, came together quickly and easily and tasted yummy! I loved the vanilla in this and how healthy it is compared to normal banana breads. I had never used this much nutmeg in a baking recipe before, but must say that I liked it. :)
I made half the recipe in a small loaf pan and reduced the sugar to 1/8 cup as I thought the bananas would be sweet enough, which they were.
My only problem was that this bread stayed rather fudgy and stuck badly to my baking paper. Other than that a real keeper!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing it with us, Ilovbaking!
