Banana Nut Bread....A tried-and-true-recipe!

Haven't killed Tom (turkey) yet, but we've sure made a dent in this loaf of banana nut bread!

Banana Nut Bread
1 stick butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. each, baking powder, soda, salt
2 cups flour (plain)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3 medium size (very soft) bananas to make one cup pulp

Mix softened butter and sugar, beat in eggs, sift dry ingredients and add along with milk.   Stir in banana pulp and pecans. Pour into a 2-pound greased loaf pan and bake 1 hour (until toothpick comes out clean) at 350 degrees. 

I must admit that I always alter  this recipe a bit.  I  cut the salt in half and only use 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar.  I don't really care for the very sweet dishes.  And....I see no harm whatsoever in using more nuts! 

What the's Thanksgiving!
