Maple Walnut Banana Bread

 Maple Walnut Banana Bread
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.
