Thanks for sharing your recipe. This recipe has the proportions of a muffin, very interesting indeed. The butter is low and the egg level is low. Given that, do you bake for exactly one hour, it would seem the one hour would make the banana bread dry. Is the taste considerably different than conventional banana bread recipes
