Recipe: Sun River Banana Bread

I have no picture of this, but it is my favorite banana bread ever. It's dense, not crumbly or oily, and has just the right amount of sweetness, with a nice lightly crusted top.

2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup mashed fully ripened bananas
1/4 cup yogurt
1/2 cup coarsely chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Blend in banana pulp. Add baking powder, soda, and salt. Alternate adding the flour and yogurt. Pour into a well-greased and floured loaf pan. Bake on the center rack for about one hour. Remove from pan and cool on rack.

Makes one loaf.
