Limey,
That sounds tasty!!
What do you do with it? (well, besides eat it, LOL)

Eat it as a bread and butter or make sandwiches out of it?
Do you put any spreads on the top of it?
Like honey butter or jams???

Okay, Rita, this is my most favorite one to make.
*I end up with alot of reeeeeeeealy rip banana's some times when all of a sudden my family says, I don't want banana's for a few days.

So, I have to do something with them..

Banana Nut Bread...

"This one is pure and simple banana bread, heavy, moist and dark"
(8 1/2 x 4 1/4 x 2 1/2-inch loaf)

3 ripe banana's, well mashed
2 eggs, well beaten
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar (*I personally use 1/2 cup brown sugar)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

I then went to add 1 cup of applesauce, just because I liked it, and made it even sweeter, moister and better to me...

Preheat the oven at 350*F. Grase a loaf pan. Mix the banana's and eggs together in a large bowl. Stir in the flour, sugar, salt and baking soda.
I then put in the applesauce. Add the walnuts and blend. Put the batter in the pan and bake for 1 hour. (*Check with toothpick, if it comes clean, it's done, if not a few more minutes) Remove from the pan to the rack. Serve still warm or cooled, as you like it.
I love it warm, and I love it cold..
I personally put an I Can't Believe It's Not Butter type of a spread over it, but you can put butter or whatever your favorite spread is on top!
I make always make a double recipe when I make this, so just double the ingredients if you want to do that too, I make one large loaf and that gets devoured that day it seems...and then I make a bunch of mini~loaves and put them in the freezer and pull out if I have unexpected company and no desserts on hand....

(The top gives you the pan size, but I can't say I ever followed the pan size before???
I do one large pan and several (5) mini~loaves out of a double recipe)

I loooooooove to bake. Herea re a couple of my favoruite recipes.

War Bread
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon lard or other shortening (I use Crisco)
1/3 cup molasses (NOT BLACKSTRAP!)
1 tablespoon salt
3 cups boiling water
1 package dry yeast
5 to 6 cups bread or all pupose flour, approximately

In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, cornmeal, whole wheat, hortening, molasses, and salt. Pour in the boiling water, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth. Set aside to cool to 120-130 degrees F. Sprinkle the yeast on the batter adn blend
Stir in white four 1/2 cup at a time, first with a spoon then by hand. It will make a heavy, dense dough so if your dough isn't as elastic as the white dough your used to, it's ok!
Knead for 8 minutes (if necessary, add flour to control stickiness).
Put in a bowl and pat with butter or greased fingers to prevent crusting. Cover tightly, with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour or until it doubles in size.
Punch down dough adn knead for 30 seconds. Divide dough into 2 large or 3 medium pieces. Shape as desired or put into loaf pans.
Let rise for 30 minutes. While the dough rises, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Bake 1 hour, or until nicely browned.

And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make.
