I have found this recipe to be very moist. It makes ordinary banana bread a special treat. Hint: Create layers. Pour 1/4 of the batter in the pan, add the pecans & brown sugar, then top with a little more batter, and more topping for a layered effect. You layer it in the pan, and it becomes a wonderful surprise to the ordinary banana bread we have all come to know. The photo is not layered... my oops. I forgot about it until I got to the pecans, but it sure didn't hurt the flavor.
