"Very good bread, my whole family loves it."

"Delicious bread. I made this as directed for the most part. Used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown. I used 2 bananas that were in the freezer and added just a little bit of Almond extract. It took over an hour to bake it but totally worth the wait, very good. Even Hubby liked it and he never eats quick bread."
