Banana Bread

2 c.    flour
1 t.     soda
1/4 t.  salt
1/2 c. butter
3/4 c. light or dark brown sugar
1/4 c. white sugar
2        eggs
4        over-ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In small bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt. In another bowl mash bananas with the eggs. In mixer bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Add banana mixture to butter mixture and beat on low until well incorporated. Add flour slowly to banana mixture and beat on low until mixture comes together. Don't overbeat. Pour batter into a well greased loaf pan (I put parchment paper into the bottom of mine).

Bake for 60 to 65 minutes, until loaf is firm when top is pressed. Let sit in loaf pan for 5 minutes and then turn out onto cooling rack. Peel off parchment paper if used. Let cool or enjoy a warm piece with butter on it.  Yummy.
