1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 Tbl baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 to 1 cup chopped nuts, optional*


Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar.  Beat in eggs (one at a time) until batter is smooth.  Blend in mashed bananas. Combine flour, baking soda and powder, and salt.  Add flour mixture to banana mixture until just moistened (do not over mix).  Fold in nuts, or sprinkle on the top before baking. Pour batter into well-greased loaf pan.  (Warren lines his with parchment paper, too.) Bake for one hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Remove from pan.  Place bread on a cooling rack.  Serve warm with butter and a mug of hot tea.  (Or in George’s case, cold milk.)
