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.

  6. Put the pans in the oven, do a toothpick test, after 25 minutes for the cupcakes, if it comes out fairly clean and is golden brown, it's done. Remove the cupcakes onto a cooling rack. Do a toothpick test, after 55 minutes for the loaf pans, if it comes out clean and springs back with a light touch, it's done. Remove the loaf pans onto a cooling rack.
