Banana Bread

Originally uploaded by kbbags

3 browning bananas left in my fruit bowl always makes me so happy b/c they are perfect for banana bread! This is a family favorite. I have tried other recipes, and while they are similar, they do not compare to this one. The secret is the browning bananas and lots o sugar! This bread will dwindle away on the counter and be completely gone in about 2 hours (there are 6 of here) Enjoy :)

Banana Bread

one stick of butter
1 cup of white granulated sugar
3 eggs
3 very ripe bananas (mashed with a fork)
1 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)
2 cups of flour
1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a med/large mixing bowl in the microwave, mix in sugar and eggs and blend well. Add banana and walnuts. Sift in flour and baking soda. Mix well, pour into a pam sprayed loaf pan and bake at 350 for 75 minutes (may cover with foil if the top is browning up to much). Serve with whipped cream cheese! xo Brie
