I didn't particularly love the taste of this banana bread. It just seemed kind of plain and a little dense. It needed something, maybe vanilla, but definitely some walnuts would have been good too. It was so easy to mix up and it bakes up nicely. Just wish the flavor would have been there also. The great part about the recipe though, is it holds up nicely to food gift wrapping. I let it sit out for a day and it dried nicely on the top for wrapping. I got my inspiration from the Allrecipes magazine to make it into a food gift from pg. 80 of the December/January 2014 issue. I highly recommend the food gift wrapping suggestions, from page 78-87, in the magazine. I had a round disposable pan and used that instead of the traditional rectangle suggested. I also found tissue paper, pretty ribbon, and gift tags right in my attic and closets, not needing a trip to the store. Some other great ideas are available on the Homemade Holidays section of Allrecipes with a variety of selected recipes and Allrecipes also has a video on making and wrapping food gifts. Hope that helps!
