So good that it's worth letting your bananas go mushy on purpose.

  • 1-3/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 cup mashed, fully ripe bananas


Sift together the flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Cream the butter. Add the sugar gradually and continue beating until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat well.

Add the flour mixture alternately with the mashed bananas a little at a time, mixing after each addition only enough to moisten the dry ingredients.

Turn into a greased loaf pan 8-1/2x4-1/2x2-1/2 inches) and bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
