Mmmm Mmmmm. This is my favorite kind of sweet bread. In my book it far exceeds that old banana bread by a mile. But, of course, I don't really like banana bread so I'm pretty much prejudiced!! LOL

I got this one in either the 70's or 80's and am adding raisins to match the picture I found of the, otherwise, exact same recipe that I have. I think the raisins would be a good addition but you can leave them out without consequence. LOL

You can also bake them in a muffin pan if you like!!
