 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       c            Butter
    2       c            Granulated Sugar
    4                    Eggs -- beaten
    6                    Ripe Bananas -- mashed
    2       ts           Baking Soda
    1       t            Salt
    2       c            All purpose Flour
      1/2   c            Macadamia Nuts chopped
   In a bowl cream the sugar and the butter well until a light lemon color.
   Then add the squashed bananas and the beaten eggs. Stir well until all
   ingredients are completely mixed. Sift the flour, the salt and the baking
   soda into the creamed mixture then add the chopped nuts. Again mix until
   blended but make sure you do not mix the batter too much. Pre heat the oven
   to 350 degrees and when the oven is up to temperature pour the batter into
   two prepared loaf pans and bake for 45 minutes. Before my wife died she
   often watched while I was making a mess in her kitchen doing my imitation
   of a bakery chef. She said that the Kona Inn Banana Bread should be renamed
   Garbage bread because I never stuck to the recipe and added all sorts of
   thing that I found such as any kind of chopped nuts, lemon and orange zest,
   chopped apricots, chopped mango, coconut flakes and one time I even added
   some mincemeat that was left over after baking some mince pies. Perhaps the
   Kona Inn should have taken me to court and forced me to stop making changes
   to their Banana Bread. Perhaps my use of their name for the resulting
   strange flavored versions of their Banana bread had something to do with
   their going out of business some years ago.
