Banana Nut Bread

H went to the grocery store "alone" this morning and came home with a big bag of ripe banana's, they were not on his list!  The store had marked down the really ripe banana's and he got the whole bag for $1....10 banana's.   H loves to cook, so he made the bread while I cleaned on the house.

I have a favorite banana bread recipe that I would love to share with you!

It is the best and most moist banana bread that I have ever tasted.   

The recipe makes 3 large loaves...and freezes very well.

2  1/4 c. sugar.......1 stick of sofened butter......3 eggs........1 T vanilla...... 5 LARGE RIPE mashed banana's.....

Cream butter and sugar, add the eggs and beat well.

Mix the dry ingredients ......1 1/2 t soda.....3 c. flour.....1 1/2 c chopped walnuts (or pecans)

Combine everything and stir well.     Bake at 325 for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out careful not to over bake (that can make your bread dry)l

I like to sprinkle it with some powdered sugar, just to make it pretty!   Serve with a hot cup of coffee or tea and enjoy!

    Tenha um ótimo dia.

  3. Hi Penny!
    In France, we don't know banana bread, but with your receipe I'm trying to make it! I love bananas and I want to taste this bread!
    Thanks very much
    Hugs and kisses

  4. Oh- I am saving this to try, Penny. My son loves banana bread and I try to do a new recipe about once a month for him- xo Diana

  5. Haven't made banana bread in awhile. Looks so yummy with the powdered sugar. I will be making some shortly!

  6. Hey Penny; Thank-You and H so much for Posting this!!!!
    I must try your Recipe!!
    I am surprised that you do not add any type of Nuts to your Recipe....
    The Breads which I have eaten for most of my life always have Nuts, but then again I live in the South ;-) (We are a Nutty bunch, here)
    Thank-You for Sharing!!! :-)

  7. Penny!! Thanks so much for this great recipe that makes quite a bit!! I LOVE banana bread! My favorite indeed!! I don't make it too often because I am the only one who eats it. Joe is a very picky eater. I love that this makes a lot and can be frozen. I may make this as one of my desserts for when I host a table at the Harvest Tea. I also love zucchini bread.... could sit and eat a whole loaf!!


  8. Recently the Hubs and I ran across a (new to us recipe) that uses cream is wonderful. We can hardly wait till the bananas get too ripe ;-)
