Banana Bread

This is as basic a banana bread as you can make, but it's so delicious. I originally got this recipe when I was working on my library degree many years ago. It was first published in a government booklet on thrifty recipes. I realize that this calls for a large amount of baking powder, but that's what the original recipe listed. Also I have usually made it plain, but have occasionally added nuts or vanilla.
