I also call this "Poor Man's Banana Bread" - because the ingredients are simple. My Mom's calls for sour cream, making it "Rich Man's Banana Bread." On to the recipe...
Banana Nut Bread
3 cups sugar
1 cup oil
2 to 3 very ripe bananas
2/3 cups water
1 cup chopped nuts
3 1/2 cups self-rising flour
2 tsp cinnamon
Cream sugar and oil. Add eggs and bananas. Mix well.
Stir together flour and cinnamon and add this to sugar/egg mixture, alternating with water.
Stir in nuts.
Pour into two well-greased bread pans. Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
*This will make your home smell divine! I've heard that making this (and making your home smell wonderfully) is a great tip for selling your home!
*The loaves also freeze very well.
