    I love quick breads and thought this one looked delicious. Even though I cooked it according to instructions and tested it the bread was not cooked in the middle. This wasn't my families favorite and I wouldn't make it again for that reason.

    I love to make quick breads and this is one of my family's favorites. It is a very moist bread and very tasty.

    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.
