I've got "dead bananas" around here, so it's time to make banana nut bread. I always hated dragging out the mixer, etc, so I was happy when I found this quick-mix version. It makes a very dense loaf (since you're not creaming all that butter and sugar), but that's the way I like my banana nut bread.
1 stick butter or margarine (1/2 cup)
3 large very ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup sugar
2 cups sifted all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Melt butter and add with the mashed bananas to the well beaten eggs. Sift dry ingredients in and mix well. Stir in nuts.
Bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes. You might need to cover the edges of the loaf with a little foil toward the end.
