Banana Bread

I kind of forgot about this recipe until I was looking through my recipe box this morning, in search of something yummy to make for a late breakfast. I'd definitely recommend this.

Banana Bread
1/2 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 to 1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups flour
3 mashed bananas
Chopped nuts (optional)
Directions: Cream butter, sugar, salt and eggs. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda. Mix in bananas. Grease and flour a bread pan or a 13x9-inch pan. Bake at 325 degrees for about an hour for a loaf pan or about 30 minutes for a cake pan. Check for doneness with a toothpick. I added about 1/3 cup of walnuts to my batter before baking, which resulted in me also adding about 10-15 more minutes to my baking time.

Ooo... the banana bread looks sooo good! It may just inspire me to bake some up. Nothing better than fresh-made bread in the fall!
