This is a recipe that has, again, been a long standing part of my family heritage.

Do not substitute to make it low fat cause it will not taste the same. Use real sweet butter.

1/2 cup real sweet butter - 1 stick

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups flour

1/2 cup whole milk

1 tsp each baking powder and baking soda

3 mashed ripe bananas

nuts and chocolate chips are optional

Mix all the wet ingredients together including the bananas.

Add the dry ingredients

Add the nuts or chocolate chips or both.

Put in a loaf pan baking dish (make sure you grease your baking dish.

Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until your toothpick comes out clean.

Depending on your oven, check midway.

Looks yummy!
What is sweet butter? Is it by the regular butter in the store? I have a pretzel recipe that calls for that and I have just been throwing in some sugar to "sweeten" it because I didn't know there was a sweet butter!

Also a fav. in our house. I heard somewhere that you can freeze ripened bananas to bake with later. Has anyone else heard this?
