This is the best banana nut bread ever. The crusty top and moist center is heavenly. I'll never make any but this. I make it and give it out at Christmas as mini loafs to all my neighbors and friends. Everyone raves about it. You have to try it.

this is a fabulous recipe! I've prepared this recipe "the by the book" on many occasions. @ times, I've added 1/4 tsp cloves and nutmeg, 1/8 tsp nutmeg and reduced the walnuts to 1 cup. it NEEDS nothing and WANTS for nothing. IT'S DIVINE. thank you for sharing.

I made this bread on a Tuesday and the leftovers are still good Friday. This bread was delicious moist and one of the best Banana Nut Bread's I've had. I received tons of compliments from all who ate it. I will make this again in the future!
