  • Banana Nut Bread by NCAngel32

    I had some bananas that were getting too ripe and needed to do something with them so I tried this easy banana nut bread recipe and it was awesome. Thought I'd share the recipe!

    Banana Nut Bread

    1 cup granulated sugar
    8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter at room temperature
    2 large eggs
    3 ripe bananas
    1 tablespoon milk
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    2 cups all purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.

    Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

    In a small bowl mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk and cinnamon. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

    Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until flour disappears. Mix in 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.

    Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto rack and cool completely before slicing.

    Serve with cool whip or vanilla icecream.
