Approx: 55 Minutes Cooktime, (less if in high altitude)

Makes 8-12 servings

2 eggs

4 ripe mashed banana's

-add the eggs and smashed bananas

-sift together flour, soda, and salt

-add to blended mixture and add vanilla flavoring

-add crushed walnuts if desired at this point, stir into batter

-grease bottom and lower edges of 2 each 5x9 bake pans; then pour in fairly thin batter, leaving it low in both pans as loaves will raise up about 3-4 inches if done properly

Banana Bread comes in many different packages, shapes, and flavors. It originates from many different cultures and baking viewpoints. For instance in the old country it might be made using goats milk and or stone ground flour. Different styles of baking are common and expected. Do you roll yours out like bread dough? Or do you throw all the ingredients into a bread maker and say Voila! while you are hitting the start switch? hmm.. Interesting!
