Ultimate Banana Bread

I had a ton of overly ripe bananas today and decided to try the “Ultimate Banana Bread” recipe from Cooks Illustrated.  The unique trick of extracting the banana juice from double the normal quantity of bananas used in a single loaf and reducing the banana liquor really created an intensely flavored loaf.

However I had to make some modifications to the recipe to work better for me.  For some reason every time I microwaved the bananas they boiled over and I lost a lot of the juice to the microwave.  So I changed the cooking method to make less dishes.

Also, the extra layered bananas on the top of the loaf are a little extraneous for me so I skip that step as well.   I also would eliminate walnuts since I hate them, but I’ve left them in the recipe here.
