Ripe bananas start turning black so if you wait until they are fairly black they will be moister and so will your bread. I learned this recipe from my sister.

  2. Grease the bottom of 9 x 5 or 4 x 8 loaf pan.
  3. Blend well first 6 ingredients together.
  4. Stir in remaining ingredients until they are moist.
  5. Pour mixture into pan and bake for approx 1 hour.
  6. To check if loaf is done, stick a toothpick in the center if it comes out clean then it's done.

This was so yummy I printed this one out and added it to our Cookbook Binder at home and my sister made this last night and by this morning there was just a slice left. Really yummy. This one will be a fave of ours in this house. Even if I have to make an other loaf and hide it from the rest of the family.
