Banana and Nut Bread Recipe
This bread smells heavenly in the oven and comes out moist and chock-full of banana flavor and crunchy nuts.—Carlene Jolley, Fulton, Kentucky
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium)
- 2 tablespoons 2% milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla or rum extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup chopped pecans
- 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the bananas, milk and extract. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to banana mixture just until moistened. Fold in nuts.
- 2. Pour into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 325° for 65-75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).
