Banana Bread
this recipe is one of our favorites: 
 
 
1/2 cup  unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup  granulated sugar
2   eggs, lightly beaten
  zest and juice from 1 orange (may also use 1/2 cup regular orange juice
  and no
  zest if you don't have any fresh oranges) the zest really perks up the
  bread
  though
4   really ripe bananas, mashed leaving some small chunks
2 cup  all-purpose flour
1 tsp  baking soda
1/2 tsp  salt
1/2 tsp  nutmeg
1/4 tsp  ginger
1 tsp  banana extract
1 cup  finely chopped nuts either pecans or walnuts
 
preheat oven to 350:. grease and flour 9x5" loaf pan (i also line the pan 
with parchment paper and grease that). in a large bowl using an electric 
mixer, cream butter and sugar - add the eggs and beat until fluffy. add 
juice, zest and mashed bananas, beat until just combined then add the 
banana extract. add the remaining ingredients and stir with a spoon to 
just combine everything completely. pour into prepared pan and bake for 
about 1 hour or until a pick inserted into the center of the bread comes 
out clean. remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes the turn out onto 
a wire rack to finish cooling. makes 1 loaf. note: i usually sprinkle 
some chopped nuts in the bottom of the pan before adding the dough. jan
