    Very good but recommend adding 1/2 tsp nutmeg & 1 tsp cinnamon or 1 tsp ginger. Also for a healther recipe use 3/4 cup light olive oil in place of the butter. Delicious and good for you!!

    It did not have the texture of a coffee cake, which I was counting on. It had the consistency of a “bread”-like banana bread.
    The flavor was a bit bland. I felt it really need some sort of spice.
