2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup white granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed banana (usually 3 bananas is perfect)
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons milk
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a mixing bowl for a minute; reserve until needed.
Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing thoroughly before adding the next. Mix in the bananas, walnuts, and milk until combined. Add the flour mixture, stirring just until combined.
Pour batter into a buttered and lightly floured 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. Bake for about 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool 20 minutes before removing from the pan.
