What does one do with a lot of banana's, gotta make something before I have fruit flies running around.  I remembered this recipe and what better time to make it.  I had the banana's. I was not able to find the pineapple preserves at my local market so I used apricot. The bread is very moist, a wonderful taste of banana's.  So off to work with Mr. Dick they go and the container always comes home empty.
