1 cup sugar

1 cup mashed really ripe bananas ( I used 3)
1/2 cup oil

2 eggs
1 cup flour

1 tsp.baking powder
1/2 tsp. Baking soda

1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Beat sugar,bananas, oil and eggs until blended. Then mix in dry ingredients until blended. Add nuts. Bake at 350.

I love this recipe!!! It is a small recipe that is easily doubled, however I have not had good success with large pans or trying to make  a full two inch deep layer.

Use ripped bananas the skin have to be black. If you put them in the refrigerator like for 2 to 3 days they will turn black.  They are going to be very soggy and messy but they are going to be flavorful since the natural sugars of the banana are mega concentrated.
