I made a double-batch.  It's very good.  Not quite as dense as my mother's - it has a lighter texture.  My boys think it's awesome.  I don't think it will last past tomorrow  ;D

AngelicGamer:
duhrich - it lasts about two to three days at most in our house.  I was lucky enough to get some nutella in the house to spread on it.  It was heavenly.  :)

I'm glad that your boys liked it!  I'm not sure what to do to make it more dense though.

juanita:
Try the banana banana bread( that's what it's called ) from all recipes.com or the spiced banana bread from the same site. These are my two go to recipes. Also try using half white and half brown sugar in whatever amount the recipe calls for. Good luck 

Oh Joy:
I know you already made some, but you must, must, must try the banana bread from Our Best Bites:

http://www.ourbestbites.com/2010/04/coconut-banana-bread-with-lime-glaze/

I'm not big on coconut, but this is a fantastic recipe.  The coconut is subtle, and the glaze doesn't overpower - it just adds something you never knew was missing from banana bread.

Enjoy!

This is mine, from Better Homes and Gardens, circa 1990.

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (I have used 1 cup all-purpose, 3/4 cup whole wheat)
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup mashed ripe banana (2-3 med. bananas)
1/3 cup shortening, margarine or butter (I use oil quite often)
2 tbsp milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup chopped nuts (I often leave these out but if I do put them in, I put in more.  I've also used chocolate chips)

In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add mashed banana, shortening and milk.  Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until blended, then on high speed for 2 minutes.  Add eggs and remaining flour, beat until blended.  Stir in any additions.
Pour batter into a greased 8X4X2 inch loaf pan.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted neat the centre comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack.  Remove from the pan and cool thoroughly on a wire rack.  Wrap and store overnight before slicing (yeah, like that's going to happen).  Makes 1 loaf.
