2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
2 tsp. Vanilla extract
4 - 5 large bananas, overly ripened, mashed
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. In large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Stir in the eggs and mashed bananas just until well blended. Whisk the banana mixture into flour mixture; just until it's well combined. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
Bake in preheated oven for about 1 hour, but start checking it at 50-55 minutes OR until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool in pan for about 10 minutes before removing from pan onto a wire rack. Cool completely, slice and serve.
