Deliciously Moist Banana Bread

The smell of freshly baked banana bread wafting through the house is enough to get everyone running to the kitchen.  This is such a super way to use up those very ripe bananas.
100g butter or margerine
1 cup (250ml) sugar
1 tsp (5ml) Vanilla essence
2 eggs
4 Ripe bananas (chopped)
2 cups (500ml) flour
1/2 tsp (2,5ml) Salt
2 tsp (10ml) Baking powder
1/2 tsp (2,5ml) Bicarb of soda (baking soda)
1/2 Cup (125ml) milk
Ready to go in the oven
Heat oven to a moderate 180C
*  Cream together the butter and sugar.
*  Add the eggs one at a time and beat in.
*  Mix in the vanilla essence, and chopped bananas.
*  Sift the dry ingredients.  Stir into the mixture with a spoon.
*  Lastly slowly add the milk, whilst stirring the mixture gently together.
*  Pour into a well greased loaf tin and bake for about 1 hour until a sharp knife comes out clean.
