Making Banana Nut Bread

This is the best recipe by far for banana nut bread and very easy and cheap to make. As you can tell from the photo it didn't last long at my house. So good I thought I would share the recipe for you to try. I doubled the recipe to use the naners I had.

Banana Nut Bread

3 ripe bananas well mashed 1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs well beaten 1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
3/4 cup white sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 and grease 1 loaf standard loaf pan. Beat the bananas and eggs together in a large bowl, Stir in flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and vanilla extract. Mix well. Stir in chopped nuts and pour into loaf pan and bake 1 hour. It will be a little dark in color, but if you think it will get too dark, reduce temp to 300 for last 20 minutes or so. Turn out and serve warm or cold as you like.

Enjoy and till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

Hi Jen, I really like this recipe, it is really easy and is probably the best pure flavor I have tried. I think it would work just perfect for zucchini bread too, jus sub for the naners. Enjoy!

I'm gonna try it too! Something my mom taught me was putting a bit of aluminum foil on the top to keep from getting too brown.

Hi MA, thanks for the tip. Thas a good idea. This is a really moist bread and so good warmed with a lil butter. Better yet if its fresh butter. Yum, life is good!

Hey Greg, thanks for visitin and glad your bread turned out great. I have a habit of adding lil things to add some extra nutrition. Things like raisins, nuts, toasted seeds and bits of dried fruitand sometimes applesauce.
