I had a few bananas that had ripened before I could get to them. So I decided to make banana bread. We also had chopped walnuts & dried blueberries on hand, so why not add them in too. J This recipe is based on this on that I found on BettyCrocker.com with my little additions. Simple enough, but it made it made the house smell delicious!!

1 1/4 Cups Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter, softened

2 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp salt
