Had a bunch of overripe bananas to use up, soI made a double batch and added 1/2 tsp of Vietnamese cinnamon to all. DH doesn't like walnuts, so I added them to "my" loaf. This was just delicious! Very moist and FULL of FLAVOR! What a simple, great recipe! Thanks for sharing, Boys 5.

My husband asked me if I could bake something delicious and tasty for his birthday cakes at work and It was absolutly demolished with requests for more!! Definately a winner in my books:) I did have to extend the cooking time by 10 minutes, as I was baking it at 180 degrees centigrade. Many thanks for the super, tasty, easy recipy!!!
