Very tasty! It is a dense bread, which is my favorite. The lemon/banana combo is nice and neither is overwhelming. Good recipe for sure. Thank you for sharing!!

This was a pretty good banana/lemon bread recipe. The dough for this recipe was very thick, different than what I am used too. It still tasted great, despite my concerned at first. I left out the syrup, only because I was out of lemon juice. The loaf wasn't very sweet however it saticified me. Next time, I will be sure to try it! All in all this was a great recipe for me! Thanks for it Sharlene~W!
