Banana Bread

What else am I supposed to do with those oozy, slimy, gooey, brown bananas?  For banana bread the slimier the better!  You know – the kind of banana that will begin to disintegrate in your hand as you try to peel it, or better yet, the kind of banana has already started to ooze out of its peel and is sitting in its own little puddle of brown muck.  You get the picture.  The miracle behind banana bread is that you take this disgusting, unappetizing pile of mush, and transform it into a sweet, toothsome breakfast treat.
