Shauna's Banana Bread

I am not the biggest fan of banana bread because I am not the biggest fan of bananas, but this bread, oh my, is one of the best banana breads I've ever tasted. My dear friend, Shauna, would invite us over all the time for banana bread when we lived in Portland. Then she would send us home with a loaf. What a dear, dear woman. This is a family favorite!

Shauna's Delicious Banana Bread

1 1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter, softened
2 eggs
3 or 4 smashed bananas
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 c. milk
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together sugar and butter. Then mix in eggs, bananas, lemon juice, milk, and vanilla. Add the remaining dry ingredients, beat until smooth. Pour into greased pans. This makes two large loaves of banana bread. Bake large loaves for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Don't overbake! Bake for less time if you make smaller loaves of bread.
