This morning was filled up with quite a bit of household tasks and chores, so to take a break I made a batch of banana nut bread. Mostly this was motivated by having plenty of leftover bananas that were overripe and about to go bad anyways -- double bonus!

Banana Nut Bread

Ingredients:

* 1/2 cup butter or margarine (1 stick)
* 1 cup sugar
* 2 eggs
* 2 cups flour
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
* 3 large bananas, very ripe, peeled
* 1 cup finely chopped pecans, almonds, or walnuts

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

2. Cream together butter/margarine and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Sift or whisk dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, & nutmeg) together, then add to creamed mixture. Stir in bananas and chopped nuts.

3. Pour banana nut bread batter into a well-greased loaf pan; bake at 325 degrees for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. This banana nut bread recipe makes 1 loaf.


Ridiculously easy to make and cook, smells fantastic, and my loaf is just about to come out of the oven. Of course, I did neglect to properly grease the pan before I put in the dough, so no doubt it'll end up a bit stuck to the pan -- learning experience for next time!
