Loaded with banana flavor and just the right hint of maple, this old-fashioned walnut-topped loaf is easy to prepare and tastes wonderful warm from the oven. "I sent a loaf of this bread to work with my husband, and his co-workers loved it," relates Amy Hawk of Seabrook, New Jersey.

This banana bread was so yummy and moist. I added a twist seeing how my family love walnuts I added about 1/2 cups of finely chopped walnuts in the bread besides the ones on top. Will definetly be making this banana bread again real soon.
