Best Banana Bread Ever

Eric and I found ourselves needing a little taste of home this week, so I e-mailed my mom for my Great Gram's banana bread recipe. It's best to use overripe bananas, and luckily Eric and I always think we'll eat more bananas then we really do. So I throw em in the freezer once they get past edibility and once I have enough of 'em I whip up a batch . It turned out great, especially considering I can't find any baking soda in China. (We used a little extra baking powder and lemon juice as a substitute.)
