fabulous banana bread

A few weeks ago, when i was sick, Brian brought me some Bananas. He got funky little bananas; they were cheap, and there were a lot of them. They were called Nino bananas. Now bananas are not something I enjoy a lot, and I tried this banana, and it was just too sweet for me.
Brian wasn't happy with it either, thinking that it was a grassy banana.

It didn't take long for the bananas to darken, so we decided to make banana bread, and it is highly praised. There were about 12-14 bananas on the bunch, so I made a big batch.

fabulous banana bread!

2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 cups margarine
4 eggs
8 cups of flour
4 teaspoons of baking soda
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
grated cinnimon (off of a stick)
shake or 3 of salt
3-4 cups mashed nino bananas
1/4 cup milk

Cream sugars and margarine. Add eggs and mix in. In a separate big, big bowl, sift flour, baking soda, and spices. Mix together.
You can mash banana's by hand; or you can use a blender or magic bullet. Add the 1/4 cup milk to bananas to add some hydration. (I really pureed my bananas to death.) Mix into wet ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until blended.
Grease and flour several pans; I made 5 mini loaves, 2 regular sized loaves, and 1 big loaf of banana bread; all of the loaf pans were the disposable aluminum pans from the store. Fill loaf pans 1/2 to 3/4 and bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for about an hour.

If you make it, let me know if you like it!
