Good moist dark date nut bread recipe

My husband's grandmother made him date nut bread and I have been trying to find a good recipe similar to what he remembers. I've tried most of my standard ones, and so far the results have been good but not great. Anyone have a recipe they would be willing to share?

My biggest challenge has been trying to find something moist that stays moist but is not gummy, plus doesn't overbrown while baking. Part of it may be needing the right kind of pan and the right oven temp and time. The last one I made the instructions said 1 hr. and 15 min. at 350 in an 8 inch loaf pan. It was overdone at 50 min., so either my oven is wonky or the directions were. Otherwise it was pretty good.

BTW, there are a lot of good looking recipes on the "Seasons And Suppers" Web site linked above.

Hubs remembers it as being "dark and moist." But not too strong tasting of molasses, we're both not crazy about that. The recipe above had 1 TBLSP, which seemed about enough, IMHO.
