To make without a blender, mash the bananas, mix together the butter and sugar add eggs and bananas, then the flour and bicarbonate of soda, mix until all combined. Add the raisins and spoon into the tin. If you don't like raisins you could add nuts or seeds. You can also leave all of these out of the loaf and it will still be delicious.
