Since this is classified as Banana BREAD rather than CAKE, could you toast slices, or is it not dense enough?? All sound great...

I love banana bread and zucchini bread. I enjoy a hot slice dripping with honey. I recently bought some over-ripe bananas and stuck them in the freezer for later use, because my oven is out of order at the moment. Thanks for the great recipe. I'll use it. Myrasaidit

I made banana bread using a very similar recipe and it's delicious. It's great for breakfast or as a snack.
