Banana nut bread

Banana nut breadIngredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour – 1 teaspoon salt – 2 teaspoons baking soda – 1 cup butter or margarine – 11/5 cups white sugar – 11/5 cups mashed overripe bananas – 4 eggs, beaten – 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease/flour 9×5 inch loaf pans. Sift the flour, salt and baking soda into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together the butter or margarine/sugar until smooth. Stir in the bananas, eggs, and walnuts until well blended. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture, and stir just until blended. Divide the batter evenly between loaf pans. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes in the preheated oven, until a knife inserted into the crown of the loaf comes out clean. Let the loaves cool in the pans for at least 5 minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack, and cool completely. Wrap in aluminum foil to keep in the moisture. Ideally, refrigerate the loaves for 2 hours or more before serving
