This bread is fabulous! I did however follow the advice of beancooker who decreased the brown sugar...i really wish i wouldn't have... i would have liked it a little sweeter. so for those of you out there that like a sweet bread follow the recipe exactly...if you like a less sweet bread then decrease the brown sugar. i did only bake this for 45 minutes as well and it came out perfect...mine did not drip over the pan at all (not even close to the top) thanks grandma 2969 for posting a great recipe!!!!

This bread has great texture and flavor. I did encounter one small problem. Using a standard bread loaf pan, the batter rose up and dripped all over my oven. (thank goodness for foil liners.)Also felt it was a little sweet and will try next time to reduce the amount of brown sugar but there will definately be a next time.The molasses flavor comes through just right.
