Author Amy Roberts


  • 3 cups sugar (or sucanat)
  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 8 eggs
  • 8 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 4 tsp vanilla
  • 8 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups nuts (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350° and grease the bottoms of 4 large bread pans.
  • In a large bowl, cream together sugar and butter. Add in eggs, bananas, milk, and vanilla.
  • Add in flour, soda, and salt. Stir to moisten the ingredients, being careful not to overmix the batter. Lastly, fold in nuts (if using).
  • Pour batter into the bread pans and bake 50-60 minutes, until nicely browned on top and pulling away from the sides of the pans.
  • Remove bread from pans to a wire cooling rack. Cool completely before storing.
