What do you do with your very ripe bananas?

I made Banana Bread!

My Simple Whole Wheat Banana Nut Raisin Bread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
I sliced and mashed the 4 small very ripe bananas in a big bowl.
I used a potato masher.
Added to the mashed bananas:
1 cup Yellow Raisins.
1 cup Walnuts
1/2 cup Organic Maple Syrup
1 Egg
1/4 cup Butter
1 teaspoon Simply Organic Lemon Extract
Blend it all together.
In another bowl - Mix together:
 2 cups of Whole Wheat Flour
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
Stir Flour/baking power mixture into Banana mixture.
Spoon into a greased loaf pan. (I used olive oil and paper towel to grease the loaf pan.)
It's really a thick heavy "batter".
So you will need to even it out a bit.
My loaf pan is the CorningWare kind, I put it on a cookie sheet.
I first checked it at 45 minutes.
Baked it for a total of 60 minutes. 
That's how long it took for a tooth inserted in the center to come out clean.
