Made this today, and just had my first slice. It's a great moist bread, texture of banana bread but not a huge banana flavor. Also doesn't taste a whole lot like gingerbread--I appreciate the spices, but not a strong spice-y or molasses-y flavor. I'd definitely make it again though and try to tweak it a little bit, since the texture is great, it's light and it's great for using up those ripe bananas.
