I mean it sincerely when I say that this is the world's best banana bread. Not that I've tried them all, but I don't need to. The brown sugar brings out the flavor of the bananas, instead of over sweetening like white sugar. The rich and creamy flavor is complimented by the addition of chopped walnuts, which make this banana bread filling enough to be a complete breakfast.

2 c flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/2 c butter, softened
3/4 c brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
3 large, very ripe bananas
1  1/2 c chopped walnuts


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl, mix together the butter and brown sugar. Mash up the bananas, and add them, the eggs, and the walnuts to the butter and brown sugar, mix well. 

    Pour the banana mixture into the large bowl of dry ingredients, and mix together until smooth.

    Grease a 9x5 loaf pan, and bake for 60-65 minutes. Remove from the oven, and let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before turning out to a wire rack to cool completely. 

    This is my take on a recipe I originally found here.
