If you like your banana bread to taste like a very sweet spice cake, you will like this recipe. This loaf tastes good, for a spice cake, which is what I would think I was eating if I did not know it was supposed to be a quickbread. My three criticisms are (1) that the banana flavor is obscured by the excessive amount of ground cinnamon, (2) that the texture is too soft and cake-like for a quickbread, and (3) that the large amount of sugar makes it overly sweet and, again, too cake-like. My family and I agreed that we prefer banana bread that is more banana-flavored, more toothsome, and slightly less sweet. I give it three stars because even though it is neither banana nor bread, it tastes good as a spice cake.
