Banana Nut Bread

Nothing smells better than bread straight from the oven.  Swap in the type of nuts and spice you prefer.  This is also good with pecans.

1 - 1/3 C. Flour
¼ tsp. Salt
½ tsp. Baking Soda
¼ tsp. Baking powder
5-1/3 Tbsp. Butter
2/3 C. Sugar
2 Lg. Eggs
2 Bananas, Mashed
½ C. Walnuts, chopped
½ tsp. Cinnamon
¼ tsp. Nutmeg

Have all ingredients at room temperature. Heat oven to 350. Grease 6 cup loaf pan with oil. In bowl, cream butter and sugar until light in color. Beat in flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Mixture will be very dry. Beat in eggs, cinnamon and nutmeg. Fold in bananas and nuts. Batter will be very thick. Scrape into pan and bake about 50 – 60 minutes until toothpick inserted in middle of loaf comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes. Loosen sides and turn out on cooling rack.
