Banana Nut Bread

From Marilyn

Very moist and delicious.


1 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter, softened

2 eggs

3 bananas, sliced and mashed a bit

2 cups flour (Add 2-1/2 Tbs. for high altitude)

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 cup pecans, chopped

Grease metal loaf pan.

Cream sugar with butter.  Mix in the rest of the ingredients.

Here’s the difference:  Place pan in cold oven.  Set oven to 300° and bake banana bread 1-1/2 hours or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Cool 5 min on rack and then remove from pan.  Makes 1 loaf.
