Banana Nut Bread


Who has overly ripe bananas? When I do – this is my go-to recipe, easy to make and moist!

NOTE: When I bake sweet breads I always grease my loaf pans and I have a jar of Cinnamon/Sugar Mix – I sprinkle cinnamon/sugar over the greased loaf pan/pans – love the cinnamon sugary crust!

1 Stick Butter
4 Large Ripe Bananas
2 Large Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2  Cup Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 Cup Walnuts, chopped – optional

Preheat oven to 350º. Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray or grease with butter – sprinkle pan with cinnamon and sugar mix then set aside. Add the stick of butter to a large microwavable bowl and microwave for 1 minute, or until melted. Add the bananas to the same bowl and mash with a spatula or fork, add the vanilla and egg continue to mix until well combined then add in ½ cup walnuts – mixing again until combined. In another large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix together with a spatula just until combined – try not to over-mix. Pour the batter into prepared loaf pan and bake for 45-55 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean.
