Made this as one of several contributions to the munchie table for a student art show at a local community college, & I actually managed to get 24 half-slices from the loaf! My bananas were quite ripe, so their flavor was right up front & enjoyable, & the entire loaf disappeared before halftime! Thanks for posting your recipe!
