This is an easy recipe that I saw in a local cookbook but I made a couple changes to it. It's super easy, with ingredients I had on hand, and it's absolutely delicious. Enjoy:)

Banana Bread
Marietta May

1/2 c. unsalted butter
1 c. sugar
2-3 over-ripe bananas
2 eggs
2 c. all-purpose flour
A pinch of salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/3 c. nuts (optional)
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350º
1) Mix the butter and sugar together.
2) In a separate bowl, mash up all the bananas with a fork until they are a juicy pulp (I like my bread chunky so I don't mash every bit).
3) Mix in the bananas and eggs into the butter and sugar, then add the dry ingredients I split the flour into 2 parts and mix between parts (one cup at a time).
4) Add nuts if you wish, then split dough between two small greased and floured bread pans, or one big one. 
5) Sprinkle sugar over the top of the dough in the pans. Bake for about an hour (if you're using two small pans…longer if one big one).

I like my bread chunky so I left some small chunks in here!
Take a paper towel to spread to stuff around… then sift a bit of flour to coat the pan
Sprinkled on some sugar!
