Preparation

  1. Cream together butter and sugar.
  2. Add eggs to mixture, mix well.
  3. Add salt to mixture, mix well.
  4. Separately on a plate or bowl mash bananas, vanilla and baking soda together.
  5. Add flour to butter/sugar mixture, mix well.
  6. Add bananas and nuts to the batter and mix well.
  7. Pour batter evenly into 2 greased bread pans, bake middle rack for 1 hour.
When loaves come out of oven, let sit for 5 minutes and then remove to cooling rack. 

Combine powdered sugar & 1 1/2 tbsp milk together and stir. Add remaining liquid slowly to make a smooth, not too liquidy glaze. When the loaves have cooled enough, but still warm to the touch pour glaze over loaves. Let cool completely and let the glaze set.
