Moist Banana Bread (w/ a GREAT crust!)

This banana bread comes out with a nice hard crust (sweet and delicious) and the inside stays moist for days. It's delicious and the ingredients are easy to find (even overseas, except for the vanilla which I brought with me). In fact, I just buy a bunch of bananas and wait for them to brown/soften and then everything else is already in our home, so I can make it whenever I find a free moment. Hope you enjoy it as much as our family does!

PREHEAT OVEN to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
A - 1/2 cup oil
1 cup sugar

B- 2 eggs
1 Cup of mashed bananas

C - 2 Cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

D- 3 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

E- (THESE ARE OPTIONAL, I don't use any of these, but thought some of you might like to try it with these)
1/2- 1 cup walnuts
1/2 - 1 cup choc. chips or raisins

First combine A ingredients , then add B ingredients. In separate bowl, mix the C ingredients, then add them to oil and egg mixture. Add D and E and mix together.

Bake in greased loaf pans @ 180*C (350*F) for 1 hr. (1&1/2 hour in small ovens like we have overseas--toaster oven-size). Test for doneness w/ toothpick.
