I love all things banana. Banana pudding, banana milkshakes (oh when I was pregnant did these relieve my heartburn!), banana cake, banana with crunchy peanut butter (what a tasty snack), banana bread! Oh yes, I love me some banana bread. Warm, and still a little bit gooey in the middle. Perfect for a "healthy" dessert, a side to tropical dishes, or with a hot cup of tea for breakfast. And this recipe is just perfect...and makes two loaves!! Bonus!
2 cups sugar
1 cups softened butter
6 ripe bananas, mashed
2 1/2 cups cake flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350.
With electric beater, cream together sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add bananas and eggs, beating until well-mixed. Add remaining dry ingredients, and mix until incorporated; do not overmix.
Pour into two lightly-greased loaf pans. Bake 45-60 minutes, until firm in the centers and edges begin to separate from pans.
Cool on a rack for 10 minutes before removing from pans. These freeze beaufiully. Can also be made into muffins successfully.
