Excellent! One of the worst things you can do is overcook such a nice bread. My oven has issues that need addressing, but my oven temp gauge showed 350 deg, and I actually took it out at 40 min and it was done (and a few min earlier would have been better). I always cut back on sugar, so used 3/4 cup of combined brown and white sugar, and it was the right amount of sweetness for me. Replaced the walnuts with pecans. Used both vanilla and coconut extract, 1/2 tsp each. I loved the coconut taste to the bread with that. For half of the butter, I used applesauce. Very nice and different change from the usual banana bread. I can see adding a handful of chocolate chips, possibly even pineapple to this, maybe for the holidays. Thanks Carol, this loaf is a keeper!
