For as long as I can remember, my Mom's been making this banana bread. It's so delicious and simple, there's no reason to try any other recipe! Since I have some brown bananas on my counter, I'm going to whip up a batch for my co-workers this morning. I'm sure they'll thank you, Mom!
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup (2 medium) mashed ripe bananas
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup nuts
Preheat oven to 350'. In large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in banana, milk and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients and stir by hand just until combined. Pour into 9x5 inch greased loaf pan. Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan and cool completely before slicing.
