What says FaLL more than something baking in the oven? I had some bananas on my counter begging to be used the other day. I took out Taste of Home baking to see what recipe I could try.
Banana Nut Bread
1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 cup mashed bananas
2 Tbsp. 2% milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup of pecans, chopped
adapted from Taste of Home Baking
* I substituted 1% milk instead and used walnuts because I like them better :)
Cream butter and sugar together and add your other wet ingredients. Stir dry ingredients together and add gradually to the wet ingredients. Fold in your nuts.
Pour into greased 9 x 5 loaf pan. Bake @ 325 degrees for 65-75 min. or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 min. and remove from pan to cool on rack. *You do need to back this the full time.
My family and I really enjoyed this bread. I'm not sure if it's my favorite, I think I would have added a little something to the batter. It is still a very good quick bread. Happy Baking!
