Banana Bread
Ingredients
  1. 1 cup butter, softened
  2. 1 1/2 cups sugar
  3. 4 large eggs
  4. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  5. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  6. 1 teaspoon salt
  7. 2 cups ripe, mashed, bananas
  8. 1 cup chopped pecans
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 9x5x3-inch loaf pans.
  2. In a medium bowl and with an electric mixer at medium speed, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring well. Add bananas and pecans, stirring just until combined. Spoon batter into prepared pans.
  3. Bake for 1 hour, or until a tester inserted into center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes; remove from pans, and allow to cool completely on wire racks.
