Ingredients:  
1 c. butter, softened
2 c. sugar
6 ripe bananas
4 eggs
1/2 t. salt
2 t. baking soda
4 c. flour
2 c. nuts (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well between eggs until all 4 are in the mixture. Add sliced or smashed bananas and beat well. Separately, mix together flour, soda & salt. Add to mixing bowl mixture and beat well.

Pour into 2 large greased loaf pans and bake at 300 for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Check with a toothpick - it's okay if the center isn't completely done - it won't dry out as quickly in the next few days.

NOTE: make sure you use large loaf pans or put into 9 x 13 pans if you don't have any loaf pans. This recipe makes a lot of banana bread.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
If the bananas on the counter don't get eaten soon enough and turn very brown (but not rotten) I throw the whole thing (still in it's peel) into the freezer. When I have 6 - 8 bananas to use I make this recipe. Peel the skins and strings off and squeeze excess liquid out over sink. Smash into the mixing bowl. 8 bananas are okay to use because of getting rid of the thawed excess liquid and it makes the bread taste more banana-ey.
