Buttery Banana Nut Bread

"Very moist and nutty, this bread has a flavor of butter that lingers on the palate. The spices in this are very subtle, but if you like a spicier bread, just increase those for a richer flavor."

    Excellent nanner bread! I loved the spices called for, but, did add a 1/2 tspn. of cinnamon. YUM! Real easy recipe to throw together and bake, and very tasty indeed! Thanks, Sue, we really enjoyed! Was fun making this for our cook-a-thon for you! Feel better, Laudee
