Top Review by Sydney Mike

Made the recipe pretty much as given, although I did cut back on the nuts ~ I used 3/4 cup & then toasted them before stirring them in! Also did include the cinnamon/sugar topping to appease my sweet tooth! Made for a wonderfully flavorful banana bread! Thanks for posting the recipe!
