Banana Nut Bread


4 large or 5 small very ripe bananas
1 stick of salted real butter, melted and cooled
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup walnuts
1-1/2 cups self-rising flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a loaf pan. In a large bowl, mash the bananas and then add each ingredient in the order listed, mixing well with a rubber spatula after the addition of each separate ingredient. (Mix the flour in 1/2 cup at a time.) Pour into the loaf pan. (I have a large pizza stone that I bake on, but if you don’t have one, place the loaf pan on an insulated baking sheet or 2 regular baking sheets stacked one on top of the other.) Bake on the middle rack for approximately an hour or until it pulls away from the sides and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. When the bread is done, flip out onto a wire rack and let cool.
