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.
