We had our first outdoor family brunch (a tradition during the spring season). This bread is one of the things I served. It was very easy and turned out very delicious. We ate it warm with a cinnamon-butter spread. Wonderful and thanks for sharing.

Tastes great warmed with some butter in the morning. Smelled great while baking and had the whole crowd around when I pulled it out of the oven. Thanks for sharing.

This was a wonderful banana bread! I like a lot of spice in mine and a bit more fiber. Here are the changes I made: I used olive oil instead of veggie oil and whole wheat flour instead of white. I also used 2 whole eggs. For a bit of spice, I added: 2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground cloves, 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp allspice.
