  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, add all purpose flour, salt & baking soda. Whisk for several minutes.
  • In another bowl, add eggs, butter, bananas (mashed), vanilla extract, and milk. Stir and combine for several minutes.
  • Combine and stir together the wet and dry ingredients in a large bowl. Fold and stir for several minutes, until it's mixed well.
