Banana Fruit Mini Loaves

Plenty of goodies come in these little breads. The recipe is from my aunt, who always baked homemade treats for my sister and me when we visited her. Several of her recipes remain favorites of mine.

    made it exactly,worked out good. And it doesn't scream fruitcake! In my oven it would of been better to bake for 32 minutes. 35 min. slightly over bakes it so it got a little dry. I might try a little rum in here or orange zest and a squeeze of orange juice? It will be a fun one to give out at christmas.

    I added banana extract to this,then it popped for me! I think I will try rum next time. This doesn't have the traditional dry fruit bread taste. So don't hesitate to try it! Dates or pineapple might make a good twist also. I will be adding this to my holiday baking list!!!
