• 6 overly ripe bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup of softened butter or margarine
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/3 cup of white sugar
  • 2/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 1/3 cups flour
  • 2/3 cups chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 2 8″ cake pans.

In a large bowl, mash the bananas.  Mix in softened butter and eggs.  Add baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and mix thoroughly.  Add flour, sugar, and walnuts and stir until all lumps are gone.

Pour the dough into the cake bans.  Bake for 50-60 minutes.  If you stick the banana bread with a toothpick and it comes out clean, it is ready.  If the toothpick comes out gooey, cook for a few more minutes and test again.

Recipe makes 2 loaves of banana bread.
