DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Grease and flour 1 (6″x9″) OR 2 (4″x71/2″) pans OR 6 (2 3/4″x4 3/4″  bread loaf pan(s). [These measurements are approximate. It seems there are no standard sizes.]This is the best way to prepare pan to ensure the bread will turn out of the pan without sticking. Baking spray does not work as well.
  2. Mash bananas. Set aside.
