Banana Nut Bread

No matter how hard I try to eat up the bananas before they get really, really ripe, I never get them all eaten. So I make bread form those really ripe bananas. This is the best recipe I've found so far. I found it in an old cook book I bought at an antique store. I hope you enjoy the bread as much as I do. Most of the time I bake it and drizzle a powdered sugar and milk glaze over it. Sometimes I have this sweet tooth that calls out for a little something extra, I make a caramel frosting and pour it over the freshly baked, warm bread.
