Here is a recipe that I have also tweaked so many times until "I" was satisfied with the taste, texture and presentation. It is very dense and very moist. I make this recipe for Banana Bread and Cupcakes every Sunday. It barely makes it to the middle of the week. This recipe yields a large amount - 2 loaf pans and a 12-cup muffin tin.
