Banana Bread Banana Bread
(from Mikee's mom Janell 3/14/99)


Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 deg F. Grease and flour a 9x5x3 loaf pan.

Step 2: (pick one method)

Fluffy Method
Cream butter and sugar, add eggs one at a time, beating. Add mashed bananas and beat well. Sift flour, soda, salt and add to bananas-sugar-butter mixture...mix well.

Dense Cake Method
For shortcut: You may melt butter and add mashed bananas to well-beaten eggs. Sift dry ingredients and mix well. Makes a more compact cake.

Step 3: Stir in nuts. Pour into prepared pan. Bake at 350 for 55 to 60 minutes, until a thin stick inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean, with only a few moist crumbs clinging to it.

Tip for cutting: Let the cake cool completely before cutting. It will hang together much better. Warm cake falls apart. - 2004.07.20
