Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan.
In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas, butter, and beaten eggs. Whisk to blend thoroughly.
In another bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Stir to blend the dry ingredients.
Stir the dry ingredients into the first mixture until blended. Add the chopped nuts.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.
Let the bread cool completely on a rack before slicing.
Enjoy the bread with flavored cream cheese or butter spread or plain butter.
