Ingredients
2 cups of sifted flour *
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 beaten eggs
3 mashed ripped bananas
1 stick of butter (1/2 cup) softened (with or without salt)
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/4 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)


Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease bread pan(s) (1-9”x5”, 2 – half loaf pans, 3 – mini-loaf pans).
  2. In a separate bowl mash bananas.
  3. In a large bowl sift flour, salt baking soda.
  4. In another bowl beat together butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Then add eggs
    and bananas and blend well. Add flour to banana mixture. Once blended together
    fold in the walnuts/pecans and then pour into bread pan.
