Aunt Helen's Banana Bread

This is the banana bread I grew up with...from my Aunt Helen.  They freeze up nicely, so I usually eat one now and pop the other in the freezer.  Or you can easily half the recipe if you only want one. I don't like to wait until the bananas are super brown, as it makes a darker texture in the bread.  I usually do the bread when they're quite spotted, but not mostly brown.
