REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I also thought it was tasty and easy...I wanted it to be a bit healthier though, so I replaced the oil with 2 cups mashed banana instead, reduced the sugar/molasses a lot, and added dates and honey for sweetness. Didn't have any plain vinegar, so added apple cider vinegar (don't know if that impacted taste) Also added more of all the spices. Then baked this all in a loaf tin...really incredible results...highly recommended!!

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
This recipe is ridiculously easy to make with ingredients most people already have on hand in the pantry. It is very light and moist. My dear husband, who is very selective in the foods he likes, raved about how delishes he thought this was. Definitely a keeper and highly recommended.
