Banana Nut Bread

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 c. butter (1 stick)
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
3 lg. very ripe bananas, mashed
2 c. sifted all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
12/ c. chopped nuts

DIRECTIONS:

Cream butter and sugar thoroughly. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Add mashed bananas and beat well. Sift flour, soda and salt together and add to butter, sugar, banana mixture, mixing well. Stir in nuts. Pour into greased and floured 9 by 5 by 3 loaf pan. Bake 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes. Allow to cool thoroughly before slicing.

For a short cut mixing method, melt butter and add with the mashed bananas to the well beaten eggs. Sift dry ingredients in and mix well. Stir in nuts. This makes a less fluffy, more compact moist loaf.

Some amount of whole wheat flour substituted to make 2 cups does well and is more healthful.
