Average: 2.5 (2 votes)


3 large bananas
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1/4 cups nuts if desired (also chopped dates)


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Crush bananas and whip until very light. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, then flour, soda, and nuts. Add bananas last. Turn into well-greased bread pan. Bake slowly about 1 hour.

The bananas end up liquefied, which may be why this bread does indeed have a very delicate texture.
