2 c
sugar
1 c
(2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
6
very ripe medium bananas
4 large
eggs
1 Tbsp
fresh lemon juice
2 tsp
grated orange rind
2 1/2 c
cake flour sifted
2 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the over to 350* degrees F. Butter 2 9 x 5 inch loaf pans.
2
Cream the sugar and butter until light and whipped creamy. Add the bananas, eggs, lemon juice and orange rind; beat until uniformly blended. It may take a while to get rid of the banana lumps.
3
Sift together the dry ingredients and fold lightly but thoroughly into the banana mixture. Pour the batter into the prepared pans. Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, until the loaves are firm in the middle and the edges begin to pull away form the pans.
4
Cool the loaves on racks for 1/2 hour before you remove them from the pans.
Makes 2 loaves.
This bread freezes very well.
