    After attempting many recipes that turned out so dense (more like banana bread), this one finally came out moist as ever! Absolutely loved it!!! I used my own browned butter icing w/pecans instead & it was outrageously good! Thanks so much for sharing! :)

    I made this today and man was it good! Really simple and an easy recipe. I enjoyed making it and eating it. Thank you!
