I use this recipe at work,(in a bakery). So, it makes a lot! Good for institutional use or when a large amount is needed; and ample room is available. Wait till the banana's are almost rotten for the best taste. They'll be gross but tasty. Slowly save them up in your freezer till you have enough; or check with your grocery store for overripe ones.

- 10 cups overripe bananas
- 5 cups vegetable oil
- 15 whole eggs
- 15 cups bread flour
- 2 ounces ground cinnamon
- 2 ounces vanilla extract

- Cream the banana's and sugar till well blended.
- Slowly add the oil mixing the whole time on 2nd speed.

I was doing a bake sale fundraiser and had 60 cups of mashed bananas donated to us so this was perfect. The first batch I followed your recpie exactly, then in the following batches I did cut back on the sugar by 1/2 cup and theat was just right. I also had to fill texas size muffin tins to the top, but the flavor of them GREAT and when filled to the top they were "picture purfect!" Thanks for the recipe!
