To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, combine 2 cups of flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 3/4 teaspoon baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Stir together and set aside for now.

Spread the batter into a greased loaf pan. (Just a note here: I just bought this vintage loaf pan, and when I put the batter in it I was concerned that it may be too small for what I was making. The batter should only fill your pan about 2/3 full.)

Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Well as you can see, I was justified in my concern. No worries!

Allow the loaf to rest a couple minutes then remove to a cooling rack. As you can see, I simply turned my loaf upside down. Tadaa! Nothing wrong with this loaf of banana bread!
