I just made it because i had the stuff laying around and the bananas were becoming over-ripe...

Simple and easy recipe! Tastes very good! The cool thing about bananas in this quantities is that the cake (it is more a cake than a bread!) stays soft and doesnt become dry.

One input thou: your 350° are in F (Fahrenheit), right?
For all you out there who (like me) dont use this metrics, 350°F = 176°C. Make 180 for that. :)

I used liquid vanilla (You can get that in Switzerland in every Migros or Coop at the bakery-stuff)
Oh: And the dreaded "cup" is a volumetric definition used almost only in US. Why someone measures non-liquids is beyond me, but i wont judge.
For all you metric-guys and girls out there:
1 US cup = 236.6 ml

So the metric ammounts (including the columes you have to fill your measuring-jars if you go by volume):
- 113g butter (Or "1.8 dl")
- 250g sugar (Or around "2.4 dl")
- 188g flour (Or around "3.5 dl")

I am in the process of trying it with added choclate-chips :)

Actually, cups are used almost everywhere, but the amounts differ. Japan's 200ml, Canada uses 240ml or 250ml, depending on manufacture, and most of Europe uses 220ml to my current knowledge. However, I agree that it's far easier to measure fluids by ml and dry ingredients by weight, much more accurate n.n

Canadian "home-cooking" cookbooks nearly always call for cups, tbsp and tsp of dry ingredients as the kitchen scale was relatively uncommon for the housewife until recently; for gourmet foods, culinary arts and special desserts the recipes call for a greater precision
