Preheat oven to 325 Fahrenheit.

Cream butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment. Add bananas, then add eggs one at a time, mixing well between each addition.

In a separate bowl, sift flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda, mixing completely. Add the flour mixture and nuts to the banana mixture and stir only until combined. The batter will be extremely thick.

Divide the batter evenly between two greased and floured loaf pans. Cook for one hour or until a cake tester comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Personal Notes:
This is another recipe from mother. She used vegetable shortening, however I have adapted it to use butter. I made it recently with some leftover plantains combined with some leftover coconut milk. It turned out well. It's a very forgiving recipe.
