Banana Bread

This is an amazing banana bread! I made this for my Mom, Larry and Aunt Anita to take on their trip this morning to North Carolina. I only use overripe bananas that I have frozen specifically for this reason or if I can get overripe bananas at a reduced price. When using the frozen bananas, I just take them out and let them thaw. There is no mashing needed, just open and squeeze into bowl.

1 1/2cups all-purpose flour
½ cup wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup ideal brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
5 mashed overripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
