I get so excited when I have some old bananas. This recipe is fantastic! I use it for muffins and bread. And this is a staple for my Christmas baking. It also freezes great.

2 cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

3 to 4 very ripe bananas mashed

1/2 to 1 cup of chopped nuts(optional)

Perheat oven to 325

Grease and flour pans, set aside

Leaving the mixer on the entire time. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Add dry ingredients and blend well. Add mashed bananas and most of the nuts, save rest for the top of the muffins or bread.

Pour into prepared pans.

Muffins 30-35 mins, makes 18 muffins or loaves 55 mins, makes 2 8 inch loaf pans.

The top of muffins or bread should be browned.
