This is another repeat. I think this is the very best banana bread recipe and I felt it was worth another printing. For those of you who missed it in October 2010, here it is again.

Do you like banana bread? I do, and it is a good thing to make if you happen to have six ripe bananas. If you only have three ripe bananas, just halve the recipe. One cup sugar, one stick butter,  2 eggs etc. Here is the recipe for Kona Inn Banana Bread. (Some people call these Queen Surf banana muffins).

Preheat oven to 350 and grease two loaf pans or one loaf pan and a muffin pan. I use a muffin top pan ’cause I only like the tops.

If you don’t have one of these pans, they are terrific. There are six wide circles about half an inch deep. Each one takes the same amount of batter as a muffin, but what you get is ALL TOP.

Mash six ripe bananas in cuisinart (or with a fork), add four beaten eggs. set aside

2 sticks butter softened

2 cups sugar, or a less if you don’t like it too sweet.  1 1/2 is OK.

Cream these together. Add bananas and eggs

Meanwhile sift 2 1/2 cups cake flour, 1 teas. salt and 2 teas baking soda together three times. Add and just mix into all wet ingredients. I like to add chopped walnuts.

Pour into pans and bake for 27 minutes for muffins and 45-55 minutes for the loaf pans.

p.s. if you use those little disposable loaf pans, it will make four or six and they make cute gifts and you probably only have to bake them about forty minutes or less.

ppss. You can leave it plain or if you want it more like a cake, you can frost with a cream cheese frosting. This also freezes very well.
