Method: preheat oven 350 o..Mix softened butter w/sugars, beat until fluffy, then add eggs,vanilla,and then mashed bananas, beating with hand mixer after each addition, about 1 min. Mix all dry in another bowl wi a whisk , and then add to banana mixture along with cream. Finally stir in walnuts if using. Pour batter into greased 9x5x3 in loaf pan. Bake about 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.(if loaf gets too brown before done,loosely cover with a piece of aluminum foil.) When done,
    cool pan on rack 10 min., then remove loaf and cool completely on rack.
