Banana Bread

My mom makes the best banana bread and this is her recipe slightly modified. I'm not a huge fan of bananas (so I use less) or nuts. It still tastes great, but you can always use more bananas if you want. This recipe makes 2 9x5 pans or 2-12 cup muffin pans. I usually make 1 of each, or you can halve the recipe for 1 pan.

3 very ripe bananas (For more banana taste use 6)
1 tbs vanilla
1 stick butter
1/2 cup veg oil
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp baking soda
3 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup of walnuts (if desired) I don't like nuts in my bread

Preheat oven to 300 deg
Cream together butter & oil and slowly add sugar
Mash bananas and mix with whisked eggs
Add banana mix to butter and sugar
Add vanilla
Mix the flour and baking soda and slowly add to mixture
Add nuts if you like

Pour in well greased pans and bake
For muffin pan, about 25-35 minutes
For 9x5 pan, about 65-75 mins
