I got this recipe from my boss's wife and it is very good.

Great trick--not unlike bran muffins without the eggs. I made 1/2 the recipe in 2 cans. (Don't forget to remove the outer plastic label from the cans.) I sprayed the cans well with "Baker's Secret"; baked perfectly in an hour and came out of the cans slick as a whistle without too much shaking. It slices easily into rounds with a nice just may call out for cream cheese! I’m wondering if you could sub some whole wheat or rye flour for all or part of the all-purpose? I might have to try it next time. Until then, make this…it’s so easy and, you’re right, Mike... VERY good! Thanks to you & Shelia!
