Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease and flour a bundt pan. In large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until smooth, then slowly add eggs and bananas. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Add to the banana mixture. Mix until batter is blended making sure not to over beat. Spoon batter into prepared pan and bake 40-45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes and transfer to wire rack.
