Great! For a change up use lemon or orange. Al ways a winner here.

MY REVIEW

You can only eat so much banana bread! - This is a delightful loaf with a little tartness. Icing is fab. Make this several times a year.

Definitely a nice change from Banana or Pumpkin bread. I would make this again and add even a little more zest/lime juice to the batter.

MY REVIEW

I didn't make this yet but have a question. Will it still be good if I make it the day before it's going to be eaten? Thanks.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 21, 2011

This is one of the most delicious and flavorful quick breads that I have ever tasted, and everyone who I have made this bread for just raves about it. It has just the right amount of sweetness and tartness, and it is a snap to make.
