- 4 – 6 ripe (i.e. over-ripe) bananas
- 2 cups sugar
- ½ cup melted butter
- 2 eggs
- 3 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons salt
I cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans, if you like
Preheat oven to 350°F Grease two loaf pans (approx. 9×5)
Mash the bananas up with the sugar. Add the butter and eggs. Sift (or stir) the dry ingredients together and add to banana mixture.
Divide between loaf pans and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out fairly clean.
Cool in pans for a few minutes, then turn out on to racks to finish cooling.
This freezes well, if you don’t eat it all right on the spot…
— I use bananas that I would be embarrassed to have anyone see. They should be more black than brown. And not have much structural integrity, either. 🙂
