Banana Bread

from mom

6 eggs
3 cups sugar (I use half brown and half white most of the time)
1 cup cold milk
3 1/2 cups flour
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cup vegetable oil
5 or 6 small to medium bananas, mashed

Add bananas and mix with mixer. Add in eggs, sugar, milk, vanilla, and oil. Add flour, soda, salt, and baking powder. Mix well. Spray pans with Pam and flour them. I use the little foil pans. I have reused them over and over again for years. They are the perfect size to take around to neighbors or just have on the counter. Pour into pans. This usually makes 8 or 9 loaves. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Separate carefully from pan and set on cooling rack. Enjoy! This banana bread doesn't last long around our house!

Note: This is a FABULOUS recipe tweaked to perfection by my mom. You can add walnuts or pecans if you'd like. And this is also a super easy recipe to halve. I often just have 2 or 3 bananas left -and they're usually big so they're perfect for a half recipe. Also, if you use half brown sugar and half white it makes for a moist, very flavorful bread. It is great with just white sugar, too. We just happened to try with it with 1/2 brown sugar/1/2 white sugar once and it was sooo good.
