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.

I found this recipe on and it turned out so good I went to post it myself and here it was on Zarr already. I followed exactly, but I changed it to 2 cups of all purpose flour. This bread was very moist and had sweet banana-y flavor and a richer molasses-y one, just like it said would.
