This is, my friend, Saumya Sumesh's recipe. She was kind enough to share it with all her friends and encourage us to try.  "Saumya, your recipe is just awesome ....Banana Bread couldn't get any better than this...Thank You "  Below is her recipe in her own words - Things you will need:                                                  Ripe bananas - 4  (mashed well) Eggs - 2 All purpose flour  - 2 cups Baking Powder - 1 Tsp Baking Soda - 1 tsp Unsalted Butter - 1 stick Vanilla essence - 1 tsp Sugar - 1 cup (or more - depend on our desired taste) Preparation Method : Sieve the All purpose flour, Baking soda and Baking powder in a bowl and keep it aside. Pre-heat the oven to 350 F. Butter the loaf pan on all sides and bottom.  Using little all purpose flour dust the sides of the pan and bottom to keep the bread from sticking to the pan. Beat Sugar and Butter in a mixing bowl with a wooden spoon/hand mixer. Then add the eggs and beat it again for two minutes. Add Vanilla essence to it and beat again. Now add the mashed bananas to it and mix it for 3 minutes approximately. Then, add the sieved flour mix to this bowl adding little  at a time, and mixing it continuously. Mix it for 4 minutes. Pour this to the baking ware/loaf pan and bake it for an hour exactly.  Rule of thumb - Bake until the toothpick comes out clean when pierced inside the bread. Once done, set it aside to cool .  Banana Bread is now ready !!! Tips: The proportion is based on the No. of bananas. Lesser the number, lesser the quantity of ingredients should be used. One hour always woks for me. and I  just test it with small knife/fork to make sure its fully baked Sugar level is based upon our taste. One cup of sugar gives the right taste - not too sweet kind. This can be made without using the electric mixer -- Wooden spoon is more than enough to mix the ingredients well. If you like, you could , top the batter with raisins or cashews before you place it in the oven. Its purely optional.
