This was excellent! I made it first exactly as directed and taking advice from previous reviewers regarding mixing the wet and dry ingredients separately and doubling the topping. That added more topping, but I don't think it was necessarily an improvement because the bread itself was delicious even without the topping. I made this to give to our neighbors for Christmas, but after it make my kitchen smell so good, I decided to mix a second loaf to keep. By the second loaf, I was busy and forgot to do a couple things. The first time, I mixed the dry and wet ingredients separately and they blended perfectly when I combined the wet and dry.

I also forgot to grease the pan the second go 'round, and even though I used a silicone pan, it did stick and came out with a piece missing. So as long as you mix the dry and wet ingredients separately, and don't forget to grease your pan, you will do great!

Not sure what their expectations were, but this has more of a coffee cake or banana bread texture, and it was perfectly sweet. I don't think it needed any more.
