My cousin Cheryl makes this banana bread, and I am not usually a nut fan, but the pecans in this one work, and I think they add a nice variation on the usual banana bread that I am used to.

The cinnamon sugar that I use at the very end is actually a spice island grinder that fresh grinds it right as you need it
