Banana Nut Bread

It is a very snowy day here in Michigan, we are expected to get 5-8 inches before the day is out. It's days like this that I like to bake warm breads and drink lots of warm liquids. I'm looking forward to cutting into the warm and tasty banana nut bread that Estevan and I baked this morning. The recipe which I added to this post came from our Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book. I'm glad that we didn't decide to throw away those brown bananas!

Banana Nut Bread

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 beaten eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (3-5 medium)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts

Grease 9x5x3 inch loaf pan; set aside. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

In a medium bowl combine eggs, bananas, sugar, and butter. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in nuts. Spoon batter into prepared pan.

Bake @ 350 for 55-60 min. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 min. Remove from pan, cool completely on wire rack.

Mmmmm.... Pin It Now!
