Baking this loaf is a tasty way to use up those overly ripe bananas.
Step 1: Preheat oven
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease and flour the loaf pan.
Step 2: Sift ingredients
Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt into a bowl.
Add a pinch of cinnamon if you like.
Step 3: Beat the eggs
Beat the eggs and sugar with an electric mixer or whisk on medium until well blended, about six minutes.
Step 4: Add the oil
Gradually mix in the oil, and then the bananas and vanilla.
Step 5: Fold in flour
Fold in the sifted flour mixture with a wooden spoon.
Add walnuts or chocolate chips, or a combination of both, if you like.
Step 6: Bake
Pour into the loaf pan and bake until a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean, an hour to an hour and 15 minutes.
Step 7: Let it cool
Let it cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan and cooling completely on a rack.
