Banana Bread

3-4 bananas (preferably overripe)

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup sugar

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking soda

1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

Peel and slice bananas then add to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer on low, beat bananas until creamy and only small chunks remain. Add oil, eggs, vanilla extract and sugar then continue beating on low until well combined. Add flour and baking soda and continue beating on low for 1-2 minutes or until batter is evenly combined.

Grease and flour a standard-size loaf pan. Pour batter into prepared pan then bake at 350 degrees for one hour or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Cool banana bread in pan for 20 minutes then turn out and serve. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.
