    The most divine banana fruit loaf recipe!! I made it for years as Jamaican Fruit Loaf from an original Schwartz recipe booklet which I lost. Thank you so much for putting it on your website, I'm so happy to have found it again! I don't think your photo does it justice - it makes it look burnt on the top, whereas mine always comes out perfectly golden brown.
