I'm partial to fruit loaves, & this one is no exception ~ ABSOLUTELY GREAT! I had a very small bit of candied fruit still around but suplemented it with some chopped up dried fruit that I ALWAYS have on hand! So that, along with all the other fruit/nuts, made for a very tasty loaf, which, by the way, was baked in just under 43 minutes! Thanks for the keeper of a recipe!

Make sure to cook this for 40 - 45 minutes- after 25 it is still very raw. I used candied ginger in place of the candied fruit and it gave it the most wonderful flavor when you bit into a piece of it and still let the banana flavor shine through. It didn't rise as much as I had hoped, but maybe that was my fault. All in all a nice bread. Made for ZWT 4 by a Jefe de la Cocina.

I omitted the nuts and raisin (DH's preference). I used candied pineapple. It took about 40-45 minutes to cook it. Thanks Evelyn. Made for the Babes of ZWT4
