- 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
- 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.

LOVE how moist this bread is!
Loved this recipe
I love this recipe. Depending on my mood, I'll use pecans, walnuts, chocolate chips, or nothing at all, and it turns out perfect every time. If I'm really hungry, I'll use some of the batter for muffins which are ready to eat in about 15 minutes.
Overall the bread was good, not great. I had to over cook it because the center was still raw. So I'm guessing that's why it wasn't as moist.
More on the dry side.
