1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground ginger

1&1/2 cup mashed bananas (4 to 5 medium)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil or melted butter

  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of one 9*5*3-inch loaf pan.
  In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, ginger.
  In a medium bowl combine eggs, banana, sugar and oil (or melted butter). Add banana mixture to flour mixture. Stir until moistened. Fold in walnuts. Spoon batter into  prepared loaf pan.
  Bake for 1 hour. Cover loosely with foil the last 15 minutes to prevent over-browning.
