Banana Bread

This is a really yummy banana bread recipe that is assembled much differently than others I have tried. I really like the flavor and texture of it. It is from taste buds.

Banana Bread (recipe from the Joy of Cooking)
1 1/3 cups flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
5 1/3 Tbsp butter; room temp
2/3 cup sugar
2 large eggs; lightly beaten
1 cup mashed very ripe bananas
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 in. loaf pan (or three mini loaf pans). Whisk dry ingredients together thoroughly. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar on high speed, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in the flour mixture until blended and the consistency of brown sugar. Gradually beat in eggs. Fold in bananas & nuts. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, 50-60 min. for large pan; 25-30 for small pans. Let cool in the pan (s) on a rack for 5-10 min before unmolding to cool completely on rack.
