Mini Banana Nut Bread

“This recipe won several blue ribbons at our county and Nebraska State Fairs,” writes Anna Marie Moore from Aurora, Nebraska. “It’s especially wonderful with black walnuts.” TIP: Since this bread freezes so well, why not double the recipe and keep a loaf on hand for guests or a quick gift?

    I love this recipe. It is very tasty. I increased the ingredients accordingly for a 7" loaf pan and it is just as good.
