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.
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.
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.
i cut the recipe in half cuz i only have 1 loaf pan. still kept the lime juice at 2 tablespoons tho. i used regular limes as key limes are not "sour" enough for my tastebuds. i had to taste it before it was cool because it smelled soooo good. great recipe. oh and i left out the walnuts.
