The Perfect Banana Nut Bread for the novice baker, Member mswrwright

I'm not a baker...it takes too much time an too much attention...but this banana nut bread has found its way into my kitchen. My neighbor somehow got his hands on a whole lot of bananas and was giving them away. I had to do something with them so after searching, I decided on this recipe, it was awesome (notice I said was). I added the cinnamon, vanilla and brown sugar as suggested (I didn't have any allspice) and used cake flour instead. Next time I will decrease the sugar but I wouldn't change anything else. I definitely will be baking this one again...in fact this weekend.
