Brazilian Banana Bread

In Brazil we call this Banana Cake, but when I baked this for the first time here everyone started calling it Banana Bread. You can add nuts in the dough or on the top if you wish.

Overripe bananas lend an extra sweetness and a deeper banana taste to this popular bread. This is a low-fat loaf, too, because it does not call for shortening, oil or butter.
