OH I have a great one also ...but still not much energy this way...I willl save up my energy and try to post it later...
here you go dear....this is really a very light bread...almost like a cake...we love it around here..
3 1/2 cups flour

1 1/4 teasp backing powder

1 1/2 teasp salt
1 teasp baking soda

1 1/3 cups sugar

2/3 cups butter - soft

4 large eggs

4 tablesp milk

2 cups mashed ripe bananas

1/2 cup chopped pecans-(or walnuts)

In a mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda....set aside.

In a large mixing bowl cream your butter and sugar until very light and want to scrap the sides of the bowl often....

add your eggs one at a time and milk...set you mixer on medium speed---add one egg and one fourth of the milk and mix until fluffy...repeat this for all four additions of the eggs---I usually beat about one min each time...

to add the flour mixture and bananas alternately...first about 1/3 of the flour is added and beat in until smooth...then 1/3 of the mashed banana....mix well until smooth...then 1/3 of the flour...mix and so on...

you do this to keep the batter light and fluffy...yes a bit of work but really is worth it...

turn the batter into lightly greased loaf pan....this will be enough batter for two large loafs...lightly spread the batter in the pans...I use olive oil in a spray bottel to grease my pans...bake until done...depending on your oven...325 to 350 degrees...usually takes about 40 mins for large can test with a tooth pick in the center...if it comes out dry they are done is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
