"Made exactly as directed except used chopped almonds instead of pecans because I had almonds available. . My husband and I are not fans of chocolate chips in bread although my son and daughter-in-law did. Overall a good bread but probably won't make again unless it's requested,"

"Delicious bread. I made this as directed for the most part. Used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown. I used 2 bananas that were in the freezer and added just a little bit of Almond extract. It took over an hour to bake it but totally worth the wait, very good. Even Hubby liked it and he never eats quick bread."
