Baking Soda: ¼ teaspoon
Baking Powder: ½ teaspoon
Salt: ¾ teaspoon
Cinnamon: ½ teaspoon (optional)

Take a masher and mash the bananas in a bowl along with butter, eggs, and sugar. Make sure you try and reduce the banana to mush rather than keeping big chunks of the fruit in the loaf.
In another bowl, combine the flour, the baking soda and powder, salt and cinnamon powder (if you desire).
Now mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients and blend them well until they stir in completely with each other.
To this you can always use your creativity and add nuts or other ingredients that you love to eat. These might include pecans, walnuts, and hazelnuts or may be raisins. Chocolate chips, apricots or dried cherries can also be used to enhance the taste. Now mix the batter well so that all the ingredients are blended with each other without fail.
This dough should be poured in greased loaf baking pans that are already kept ready and then baked in a preheated oven (350 degree F) till the time the loaf is golden brown in colour or the toothpick in the centre of the loaf comes out clean.
