Grandma D’s Banana Bread

April 17, 2010

Tina Daugherty Cole

We’ve made Tina’s former mother-in-law’s recipe many, many times.  If you don’t have 6 or 7 bananas, don’t worry, it’s fine even if you only have 2 or 3.

1 stick butter

2 cups sugar

3 eggs

2½ cups plain sifted flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon soda

dash salt

6 or 7 bananas

lemon juice

1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350°. Cream butter and sugar. Add one egg at a time, mixing between additions. Mix flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Add to batter. Mash bananas and sprinkle with a little lemon juice. Add bananas and nuts to batter. Pour into loaf pans and bake 1 hour or until done.

Makes 2 loaves
