A tasty banana bread that develops a really yummy gold crust. While we enjoyed the same day it was made I'm looking forward to trying it aged a day also. I made this as written and it was almost too sweet for my taste but no one else said anything so it I%u2019m sure it was just me. Thanks for the post.

A beautiful, dense and moist loaf that is packed with flavour. The orange zest and juice are great additions, and next time I'll add 50-60 grams of chopped crystallised ginger. Hubby took it for the afternoon tea break at the local tennis club and everyone loved it. By the way, I used ripe bananas that I had tossed in the freezer a few weeks ago. Thanks for posting. Yum, yum!

Delicious!!! I made this because it said it improves with age and I wanted something I could make ahead. I only made them today in little mini loaf pans and already they taste really good! :) so Im looking forward to them improving. I unfortunately didnt have dates so used raisins instead but will try with dates next time. A love loaf recipe I can highly recommend.

This is one of those recipes that improves as it ages. I used whole wheat pastry flour, adding in the leveling agents. Pecans were used in place of the walnuts. We really enjoyed this for a quick snack and a breakfast treat. Made for Aussie Swap.
