Banana Nut Bread

A family favorite, this is another one from my Grandma Jo. I don't know how long it lasts in your house, but in mine it only lasts about a day. We all love bread and well banana bread is just plain yummy. And it smells good too.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 ripe bananas
2 cups of flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 to 1 cup of chopped walnuts (I don't use the nuts so the amount is up to you)

In a small bowl smash bananas and set aside.

Cream butter well. Add sugar and cream together with butter thoroughly. Add eggs one and at a time and mix well. Stir in crushed bananas. Add dry ingredients. Pour into greased bread pan and bake at 350* for 45 minutes. Stick a toothpick or cake tester in the center to see if it is done. I usually end up turning my oven off at 45minutes and then leaving the loaf in for another 15.

If Junior doesn't eat all of the bananas, I'll make that. My recipe uses about FIVE bananas, so I don't get to make it very often.

I like it best warm with butter on it. Yum!
