2 c. overripe bananas, mashed
1/2 c. butter
1 1/2 c. unbleached all-purpose flour
2 eggs, beaten
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 t. salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon. Add beaten eggs and mix them in.
Add vanilla, baking soda, and salt.
Add mashed bananas and flour and mix everything well. There may be a few small banana lumps but that’s okay. If you prefer a perfectly smooth batter you can use a mixer.
Pour mixture into a loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 90 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. It’s a good idea to start checking for doneness at about 60 minutes.
