Based on other reviews, I did make some changes. I added 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp each of cloves, ginger and nutmeg to my dry ingredients. Also, I used all whole wheat flour, added 1/3 cup wheat bran for extra nutrition, subbed the oil for 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce, added a mashed extra small banana to the wet ingredients, subbed 1/3 cup brown sugar for the 1/2 cup white. Instead of using pineapple chunks I used two small cans of pineapple tidbits well drained of their juice. Before I added the topping I put a half cup of frozen blueberries over the batter, and I added 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut and an additional 1/4 cup chopped nuts (walnut, not pecan, it's what I had) to the topping mix. This, of course, varies greatly from the original recipe, but this is one of those that's meant to be adaptable, in my opinion. Anyway, it turned out delicious!
