Over the years I have collected numerous banana bread recipes always falling back on good old Fannie Farmer it has always been good , but I wanted something else, so I took several others and came up with some pretty seriously good bread. The top was crunchy and little sugary , the inside was moist, filled with toasted slightly salty walnuts and a touch of cinnamon. It was good and Skip loved it so much that he ate one of the three mini loaves that I made.
