1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
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!
