    This is delicious. It's my go-to recipe for overripe bananas. Credit where credit is due, this recipe is from Didi Emmons' Vegetarian Planet.

    Great recipe! Something familiar yet different... didn't change a thing other than to double it, and I'm above 4,000 feet in Colorado. Thanks for sharing!!!

    A real winner here! Great flavor and smells wonderful while baking. I subbed dried cranberries for the raisins, but otherwise made as written. A nice change from plain banana bread, and I love cardamom!

    I love the cardamom against the flavor of the rum soaked raisins. I have made this twice now and it is excellent when I soak rum into the finished bread. Moist and easy. I make a large square and a loaf out of it. They are thinner.

    A great, different banana bread. The added rum and rum soaked raisins along with the cardamom make this special. I cut the recipe to 8 servings and used an 8x4 pan and it baked on convection in 55 mins @325. It's very moist. Thanks Lorrie for a real keeper. Made for Photo Tag.
