3 ripe or overripe bananas (4, if small)
1 cup sugar
1 egg, room temperature
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
Mash bananas in a large mixing bowl.
Stir in other ingredients.
Lightly grease (ideally with walnut oil) and flour an 8 x 5 inch loaf pan.
Bake in preheated 325 F oven until done: 60 to 80 minutes for a single loaf or 45 to 55 minutes for round pans.
Test for doneness with a toothpick.
Cool in pan 5 minutes; turn out on rack to cool completely before serving. Yields 1 loaf or 2 rounds.
