Ingredients

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, well beaten
6 very ripe bananas, mashed
2-1/2 cups flour, all purpose
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup nuts, optional

Instructions

Cream butter and sugar. Add the beaten eggs and bananas that have been mashed or beaten thoroughly. Sift dry ingredients three times and add to the creamed mixture. One half cup of chopped nuts may be added. Pour into two lightly greased and floured 9x5-inch loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to one hour, until firm in the center and the edges begin to come away from the pan. Cool on rack for 10 minutes and then remove from the pans.
