Banana-Brown Sugar Walnut Bread

1 cup butter, softened
1 and 1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
4 large eggs
2 cups mashed ripe bananas
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 and 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 and 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup walnut pieces

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Butter and flour (or use baking spray) two standard 9- inch loaf pans. Set aside.
2. In the bowl of an electric mixture, blend on high the butter and brown sugar until light and creamy. Add each egg one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add the mashed banana and lemon juice and mix just until incorporated.
3. With the mixer off add the flour, baking powder and salt and then slowly mix just until well blended. Stir in the walnuts.
4. Bake in the center of the preheated oven for 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into the center of each loaf comes out clean. Do not over bake. Cool 10 minutes in the pan then remove from pan and cool until ready to serve. Best to slice after the bread is just warm to the touch.
5. Store leftovers tightly sealed up to 3 days at room temperature.
