Dave's Banana Bread

There always seems to be three over-ripe bananas at the tail end of a bunch at our house. Dave uses these leftover bananas to make this delicious banana bread.

2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour (white or whole wheat)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
3 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine bananas, butter, vanilla and eggs in a separate bowl. Beat the dry and wet ingredients together in the large bowl until smooth. Add nuts, if desired (I love walnuts in this bread). Bake in a prepared loaf pan at 325ºF for 1 hour, or until an inserted knife comes out clean. Serve hot, slice, with butter.
