Banana Bread for After You Vote!

This is the most amazing banana bread in the world, it was my Grandma's recipe. She was an amazing baker, cook, sewer extravaganza and person. I miss her but know she is a huge part of me. She had this problem we would always tease her about, she would only write down the ingredients to her recipes, not  the measurements or directions, just the ingredients, because she knew exactly what she was talking about. It has taken a while for us to remember and figure out many of her recipes, but it is definitely worth it. Here is her amazing banana bread recipe, and I am sure I will share many more of her wonderful recipes.

1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup banana (usually 2 bananas)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and beat throughly. Add banana and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients and add alternating with milk.

Bake at 350 for 1-11/2 hour. I notice it usually is an hour to an hour and ten minutes, take the loaf out when the edges start to pull away from the pan and top is golden but not completely cooked through, the loaf will continue cooking after it is out of the oven. 

And there you are! All done, you have yummy banana bread!
