It's always so exciting when I'm the first to review a recipe that's been posted for awhile. I continue to try many types of Banana Bread as we always seem to have some going past their prime. This was one that certainly went together fast and easy and was very moist with a rich banana taste. It was a little sweeter than what I usually like so think next time I'd cut back a little on the sugar and maybe just use one cup. The glaze is VERY different and DH loved it (again a little sweet for my taste) I like to make my bread in mini loaf pans so that we can have one and freeze the rest for days when I need something fast (there's only the 2 of us) and I'm not real sure how this glaze will freeze but can't wait to find out the next time we have company over. All in all a very nice recipe. Thanks for posting
