“Over-ripe banana can look forward to reincarnation as another breakfast snack. A sort of healthy sweet quick bead that I have found to be a real office pleaser. The topping gives it that real professional look.”

  6. Mix in the extract.
  7. Combine flour, baking soda,pumpkin pie spice, and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture.
  8. Add the quick oats.
  9. Drain the water off the raisins and add them to the cake mix.
  10. Pour into a greased 9 by 5 by 4 loaf pan.
  11. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over the batter.
