Hawaiian Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by GoKittenGo

From a cookbook entitled "Food Editors' Favorites: Treasured Recipes". The bananas should be almost over-ripe. Be absolutely certain to use cake flour and sift three times like the recipe calls for. Sounds odd, I know, but the bread really doesn't turn out the same without doing that. It's like magic! :) This freezes very well.

I have been making this recipe since 1983. It was in a MADD cookbook of food editors' favorites. My family loves this recipe.. it is true, the roper the bananas the better. I usually blend the bananas and eggs in my blender for a smooth non chunky texture. I think baking time is also affected by the ripeness/liquid content of the bsnanas.
