Banana Bread

2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
3 cups ripe bananas (about 7 medium bananas)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup walnuts

Preheat oven to 325. Grease two 9 x 5 loaf pans
In an electric mixer cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla and bananas. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add flour, baking soda, salt and walnuts. Blend on a low speed just until combined.
Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake on center rack of oven for 60-70 minutes. a toothpick inserted in center should come out clean and the bread should pull away from the sides of the pans. Cool in pan for 10 minutes then turn pans on sides and cool to room temperature (if you can make it that long without eating it)

I LOVE this banana bread! The brown sugar in the recipe makes the top crust so delicious!!
