    I can't claim credit for this fantastic recipe, but I can sure pass it on! This recipe features spices found in a good cup of Chai, and packs a lot of banana flavor.

      I had to bake mine an extra ten minutes, but I'm sure that's just my ancient oven. I doubled the recipe, added macadamia nuts, and a half teaspoon each of nutmeg and clove. Moist, spicy, delicious! My family and coworkers loved it.

      The original recipe gets 4 stars because the loaf was quite small and cupcakes filled a bit too sparingly. With that said - the person who shared her modifications on here (with fresh ginger, applesauce etc.) was misleading. That was a TON of fresh ginger and tasted so spicy and chewy that I had to throw it out. Maybe if i had cooked some of the heat out of it first it would have been edible - not sure tho. I love Chinese 5 spice though, and sub it for many recipes.

      I really loved this bread! But i changed it a little. <br/>I actually made it twice the way you have it here but yesterday I changed it up and gotta say I liked it more the second time. I'll tell you what I did:<br/><br/>I ommitted the bananas (cuz I didnt have any)<br/>I used white sugar instead (which I would usually use brown but i just didnt have anymore). All it seemed to do was give the bread a lighter color.<br/>ommited almond extract<br/>ommited the allspice and used chinese five spices instead (about a teaspoon)<br/>I think I used a bit more cardomon<br/>a bit more cinnamon<br/>ommitted the salt<br/>I added half a cup of chopped fresh ginger<br/>and added about a cup of apple sauce.<br/><br/>It was really good! But thanks so much because I don't think I would have been able to do without having your recipe to follow!
