banana bread recipe

I got this recipe from the momswhothink.com website last year.  It's really yummy and I wanted to give credit where it's due, but I can't seem to find the link again.


Banana Bread
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
7 large bananas, mashed
1 1/2 t vanilla extract
4 eggs, slightly beaten
3 cups flour
1/2 t salt
2 t baking soda

Cream butter and sugar. Blend in the bananas, vanilla and eggs.
Whisk together the dry ingredients.
Add to the banana mixture and mix until just combined.  
Pour into two greased 9x5 loaf pans.
Bake at 350F (160C) for 35 minutes, then check loavess. Add 10 minutes baking time until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Cool bread in pan for 10 minutes then cool completely on a wire rack.

ooooh! yummy! Do you use rotten bananas or fresh ones for your bread. We always use rotten ones..but not too rotten...as it makes the flavor come out better!

Definitely the ones that are well on their way to rotten!

Thanks for the recipe, Betty. I suspect that this weekend will see a muffin fest.

Thanks, also, for dropping by my blog.
