This recipe is AWESOME. So easy, tastes delicious and never fails. I've been making it often as my house is for sale and it gets the house smelling just wonderful for people walking through. It's very adaptable too. I like to add a touch of cinnamon and vanilla to it and often substitue other fruits for the banana. This morning I used 1 banana, 1 peach and a 1/2 cup of shredded zuchinni and a handful of raisins. Yesterday it was 1 banana and 1 c of zuchinni. Before that it was all zuchinni and a 1/2 c pineapple and raisins. This recipe hasn't failed on me yet!

This was easy to make and tasted good. I agree with others that the mixture was a bit on the dry side (used US measurements) so I added some milk. I also used butter instead of shortening (I didn't have any on hand), made them in muffin form (for quicker cooking) and added some rolled oats, flaked almonds and shredded coconut.

I was hesitant that this would work at first but it came out GREAT. The loaf was gone by the end of the night and it made the whole house smell wonderful. I added 3/4 cup of milk to the recipie but I reccomend cutting it to 1/2 to make a more bread like consistency. I will definately make this one again.
