I added a crumb topping with slivered almonds, coconut, and fresh nutmeg- Amazing!
I've never like banana bread either, but this is the best recipe I've ever tried. My family and friends beg me to make it...it will be a regular at my house from now on. Putting it in my recipe box! Thank you Land O Lakes.
