Banana Bread

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, beaten well
6 to 7 bananas, mashed
2 1/2 cups “sifted” flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 to 1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs and beat well. Add the mashed bananas and blend into mixture. In a separate bowl sift together the dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients a little at a time to the batter, mixing well. (Add nuts if you like)

Pour batter into pans of your choice. Bake in 350 degree oven for approx. 40-50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Makes 2 large loaves or 5 small ones. :lol:
