adapted by There's Always Thyme to Cook

3 ripe bananas, well mashed
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (or more!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan. Mix the bananas and eggs together in a large bowl. Stir in the flour, sugar, salt and soda. Add the walnuts and stir to blend. Put the batter in the pan and bake for an hour. Remove from the pan and cool on a rack.

Sometimes I add a couple splashes of Myer’s Rum (Dark rum)
