Banana Bread (Mum)
Nothing beats a slice of warm banana bread slathered with butter! Honesty and simplicity, nothing fancy.
1 cup sugar (I drop it down to 3/4 cup)
3 very over ripe bananas (seems this has caused some confusion but think of the generation before us who many would never throw anything away. Well banana bread was a way to use old bananas, mum said "use-up", that you could no longer eat. They must have black peel and be mushy liquid inside. If you have bananas like this and are not making bread, mash em throw em in plastic bag in freezer for later use)
4 Tblsp melted butter (no sticks to annoy Melody)
1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Mash bananas to thin batter (they freeze well at this point) Add suger and eggs beating well. Add butter. Add flour, salt, and soda mixing well. Fold in walnuts.
Bake in greased loaf pan 1 hour at 375
