Orange Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Orange Banana Nut Bread Recipe

I like this recipe because the orange juice gives the nut bread such a unique flavor and also makes it moist.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:32 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed (about 1-1/4 cups)
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the sugar, oil and eggs; mix well. Stir in bananas and orange juice. Combine the dry ingredients; add to banana mixture, beating just until moistened. Stir in walnuts. Pour into two greased 8x4-in. loaf pans.
  • 2. Bake at 325° for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to a wire rack to cool completely.
    Freeze option: Securely wrap and freeze cooled loaves in plastic wrap and foil. To use, thaw at room temperature. Yield: 2 loaves.

"This is one of the best banana breads I have ever made. Super moist and very flavorful. Only had 1 cup of white sugar so added quarter cup light brown, recipe was very forgiving. Made 4 small loaves ,baked for 25 minutes, turned out great!

Thank you,I will definitely make again."

"An absolute 10 ! Have yet to find anyone who didn't like this - even used the nutritional facts for those on weight watchers to be able to figure their points. (Which is 4 points per slice.)"

"Great with whole wheat flour. I used 4 bananas. I think next time I will add some grated orange peel for a bit more orange taste.

"I recently made an orange bread recipe and since I like banana bread, I started thinking how good the two would be together. I searched for a recipe and found this one, but I was surprised to find that the taste wasn't as good as I thought it would be. Too fruity, in a "child's fruity toothpaste" kind of way. Other people liked it though, so I guess it just shows how our tastebuds are all different."

"I live at a high altitude, so I'm not sure if my lack of success is due to that reason. But this recipe produced a dry bread. Good flavor, but too dry for our liking. I'm used to dense and cakey moist banana bread. This is not even close."

"this is excellent recipe. i sub'd sunflower seeds for walnuts and only used 2 bananas (b/c that's what I had on-hand). Still turned out beautiful and delicious! Great recipe."
