This is a recipe from my Mom's old cook book that I pretty much follow to the letter. You can add nuts or chocolate chips if you like.
|Preheat oven to 350 degrees. |
Combine flour, baking powder, soda and salt and sift together.
|In a separate bowl beat the butter until light and fluffy. I just use a fork or a whisk but you can use a mixer if you prefer.|
|Add sugar to butter and beat until light and fluffy.|
|Add eggs one at a time and mix until well blended.|
|To mash the bananas you basically chop or break up the bananas into a bowl and mash them until they are fairly well softened but can also remain a little bit chunky. |
Fold the mashed bananas into the egg and sugar mixture and blend with a fork or spoon.
|Add the flour mixture into the banana mixture in four separate portions and mix well after each addition.|
|Once blended well you can turn the ingrediants into a well greased loaf pan ( 8" x 4" x 2.5"). |
Bake for about 50 minutes or until it is golden brown. You should be able to insert a fork or tooth pick and it remains dry. Enjoy!
