The Best Banana Bread

By

the banana bread:
I mix all the wet ingredients together with a potato masher so the bananas will get really mushy (technical term, lol) then add the dry one at a time mixing after each one and stir in the nuts last just before you put it in the pans.
6 really ripe bananas
4 eggs
1 cup softened butter or margarine (I use butter)
1 TBS vanilla
then add:
2 cups sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2.5 cups plain flour (I use king arthur unbleached bread flour)
2 cups chopped nuts- either walnuts or pecans do best. should be a nice thick batter, but if it is real stiff I add an extra egg to give it more moisture.
- spray pans -bake at 350 til tooth pick comes out clean.
8-small loaf pans take about 30 min
2 - 8" loaf pans take about 50 min.
you can use applesauce instead of butter and eggbeaters instead of eggs to make a lower calorie version which is very good also. can also use whole wheat flour or mix it half n half with the white flour.
