I found this on the internet ( and made it last year for the Holidays. This is a delicious bread! A wonderful moist banana bread with a crusty sweet topping of cinnamon & sugar. I like to add a little extra bananas, and then I also added some chocolate chips to mine... Yummy! This recipe is doubled.
