Super-Special Banana Bread Two Ways

I wanted the ultimate banana bread recipe, so I started tinkering. For me, this is it. I add whiskey to the batter and then spices and nuts to one loaf and milk chocolate chips to the other. This bread is very dense, moist, and sweet. It has a sugary crust and I underbake it, so that there is no chance for a dry loaf. You could obviously do both loafs with the nuts (I use walnuts, but you could use pecans or any other nut you prefer) or both with the chips (again, you could sub semi sweet, white, peanut butter, butterscotch, toffee--etc). I make both because I love the walnuts and DH loves the milk chocolate :)
