2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
3 ripe mashed bananas
1 cup chopped nuts (walnut, pecan, etc.)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease and flour a loaf pan size 9 1/2" X 5 1/2".

Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and mix together. Cream butter with the sugar until well blended and add the eggs and milk. Beat well until creamy. Add the dry ingredients a little at a time to the egg mixture and beat on medium speed. Fold in  the bananas and then the nuts until well distributed. Pour into the loaf pan. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour or until done. To test for doneness, insert a toothpick in the center of the bread. Toothpick should come out clean when done. Cool in a rack for 25 minutes before slicing.

To serve, slice 1/2 inch of the bread and put on a center of a serving plate with one scoop of vanilla ice cream and throw in some fruits like blueberries, strawberries, rspberries, etc.
