Posts Tagged ‘Banana Bread’

I discovered four quite-ripe bananas on Saturday, and decided that it was a good time to make some banana bread. I had one recipe that uses vegetable oil, but I wanted to stay away from that. So, I looked at several different recipes, and as I am sometimes inclined to do, I combined elements and came up with my own. The bread came out very moist (definitely a requirement) and the bananas added the perfect amount of banana to it. I also like having some nuts in there… walnuts this time. And as a bonus, I was able to mix everything together with a potato masher… fun!

  • 4 Ripe Bananas
  • 1/2 cup of Melted Butter
  • 3/4 cup of Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Cinnamon-Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • Dash of Salt
  • 1-1/2 cups Flour
  • 1/2 cup Walnuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Using a potato masher, mash the bananas with the melted butter in a large bowl.  Mix in remaining ingredients, mashing together throughout.  Once the flour is added, a wooden spoon works a bit better to stir together.  Pour the mixture into a lightly greased loaf pan.  Bake for approximately 1 hour… a bit longer if needed.  Cool.  Enjoy!
