Banana walnut raisin yeasted bread

This is all that was left of yesterday's night baking. Hubby had it for lunch and me,  more as a post lunch snack. This recipe is incredibly soft, rises well and cuts well too.  Most recipes use baking soda but with yeast, it feels more like lunch with a generous layer of olive spread., What can I say, but I would make it again if I have overripe bananas in the house.
