  • 3 large ripe or overripe bananas

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C)

  2. Grease bread loaf pan with butter or cooking oil spray.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. Set aside.

  4. Peel the bananas and put them in another large or medium mixing bowl. Mash. Add the butter and eggs. Mix well.
