2.3 cups of mashed bananas (more or less to taste)
1/2 cup of butter
2 cups flour
1/2 TSP salt
1 TSP baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar
Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs and mix thoroughly. Add bananas and mix thoroughly.
Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in separate bowl, then add this mixture to the mixed wet ingredients, just enough to get it all moistened. Add a cup of chopped walnuts if you want.
Turn this into a lightly-greased loaf pan and bake for about an hour at 350. Maybe a bit longer; tonight's effort took 75 minutes to be done. Test with toothpick. Clean toothpick=done.
Not sure where I got this recipe from, but it's pretty good, and fairly easy to boot. You want to use overripe bananas; not only are they easier to mash but they have the right flavor. This time I used four bananas about 8" long. The recipe mentions using banana flavoring, but you don't really need it.
I am, in fact, going to have another slice.
