Lets Make It! In a mixing bowl combine sugar and butter, using your electric mixer beat on medium high speed until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla and bananas. Continue to mix until well combined and free of any large lumps. In the other mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Using a fork, stir to combine.
