Coming from my Great Great Grandmother Shaw this recipe was passed down through the generations. This bread surpasses any other banana bread that I have had. Try and see if you agree that the 1800's were a great time for some awesome cooks.

Serves:

1 Loaf

Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

1 Hr

Ingredients

1 c
sugar
1/2 c
softened butter
3 large
really ripe black bananas
2
eggs
1 tsp
soda
1/2 tsp
salt
2 c
flour
1 c
chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Add sugar and butter and cream together in mixer. When light and fluffy add the eggs one at a time. Once mixture is again light and fluffy add the bananas one at a time. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Place prepared batter in an oiled bread pan.
2
Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until done. Ovens vary but my oven bakes the bread for one hour and turns it out beautifully. Slice when hot if you wish to make a mess of the loaf. Tastes oh so fantastic when you eat it hot with the melted butter. I find a serated knife helps me to not make so much of a mess of the loaf. Slice when cooled. Store in an airtight container. This bread can be frozen and thawed for that baked yesterday goodness.
