Ingredients

  • 1 tsp. of numeg (5 mL)
  • 1 tsp. of salt (5 mL)
  • 2 tsp. of baking soda (10 mL)
  • 2 and a half cups of flour (625mL)
  • 4 eggs, well beaten
  • 3 cups of mashed ripe bananas (6 bananas, 750 mL)
  • 2 cups of sugar (500mL)
  • 1 cup of butter (250mL)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F (180C. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add bananas and eggs and beat until well mixed. Mix dry ingredients and blend with banana mixture, but do not overmix. Pour into 2 lightly greased loaf pans or a bundt pan. Bake 55 minutes to 1 hour; test for doneness (toothpick inserted in middle and comes out clean) and cool on rack for 10 minutes before removing from pans. Freezes beautifully.

HINT: Freeze over ripe bananas in their skins in a plastic bag.
