Recipe: Banana Bread

They say I can make a mean banana bread.
It's no secret, really.
 This simple recipe shared from my grandmother & mother is just about as old as I am 
and has been permanently ingrained into my memory.

1/2 cup of butter (or shortening..but I prefer butter. Just trust me on this one!)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 or 4 very ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped nuts (I don't really like nuts, so I always leave them out in mine.)

Mix ingredients in order given.
Bake in greased loaf pan in 300 degrees for 1 hour or until done.

Now dig in!
