    Dienia B.'s Note:

    From James Beard Bread Book. One of the must have books. It's simply the best. I make muffins instead of bread, it's faster to make. The bread's not gummy and easier for my mum-in-law to eat. I grate up a little orange peel sometimes to be different.

      I whipped this up today, and baked them in mini loaf tins. The addition of brown sugar and honey gave it such a wonderful taste. The only thing I changed was I added in 1 tsp baking powder instead of the 1/2 tsp stated in the recipe, and added some toasted walnuts into the batter... I got 3 small loaves, and they turned out just wonderful! I will be giving two away and keeping one for myself. Thank you Dienia, for a great recipe!...Kittencal:)

      fantastic banana bread. The honey keeps them stay moist. Though i find them a bit too sweet. Will reduce the sugar next time by 3/4 of the original amount. Baked them for 25-30min
