"My husband and I really enjoyed this delicious banana bread. While I don't usually include nuts in quick breads, I did make this recipe as written. My only change was to make it in two pans (8x4-inch and 5x3-inch) instead of one (9x5-inch). I kept the small loaf for ourselves and shared the larger loaf with a friend. Her family enjoyed it as much as we did!"
