I made a double batch for card night and it was a success. I had to leave out the best part, coconut, because my hubby does not like it and I added allspice and nutmeg. It came out soft and fluffy and accompanied with soft butter we were able to munch on it through out the night. Thank you so much. This is my new banana bread recipe. YUM!!!

Very delicious bread. Moist and flavorful. Loved the texture in the topping too. We will definitely be having this again! Made for ZWT5, Saucy Senoritas.
