best banana bread

Saucy doesn't want to toot her own horn, but she really does make the best banana bread.  It's really moist, really dense and has a yummy, sugary top.  Sometimes she buys bananas and sets them aside to get old and brown just so she can make this banana bread.

Go ahead... make it and you'll be able to toot your own horn, too.

That sounds horrible, doesn't it?  It's practically pornographic.  Don't think like that.  Some recipes are just filled with innuendo.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup (3 but preferably 4) ripe mashed bananas
1 and 3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

In stand mixer, cream butter, sugar and eggs.  Add mashed bananas and beat until just blended.  Sift together dry ingredients and blend in gradually, finishing the last few stirs with a spoon or spatula.

Pour batter into a greased, long loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 50 minutes.  Let stand for ten minutes before removing from pan.

And there you have it... toot, toot!
