This recipe comes directly and unadulterated from a more current Fannie Farmer, but it is such an easy, simple, no fuss recipe that makes a perfect banana bread with very few ingredients, I rarely alter it.
When you have three ripe bananas and very little else, so good!
3 ripe bananas, well mashed
2 eggs, well beaten
2 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. coarsely chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease loaf pan. Mix bananas and eggs together in a large bowl. Stir in the flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Add walnuts and mix well. Put the batter in the pan and bake for 1 hour. (I use the standard toothpick doneness test). Remove from pan to cool on a rack.
So easy and I have substituted brown sugar when needed, and also made this with chocolate chips added in too.
