Banana Bread


The mornings are dark now, and autumn is creeping in around the edges. When I go outside in the morning I have to look for the webs the spiders built overnight to ensure that I’m not what becomes entangled in them.  The house is cool in the morning so it’s nice to get up and bake.  Today’s project:  Banana Nut Bread.  I made a double batch – one to eat now and one to pop into the freezer. 

Banana Bread

  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • 1 ¼ cup mashed banana
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup soft butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup chopped nuts 

Heat oven to 350º F.  Grease bottom only of 9"x5"x3" loaf pan. 


Beat all ingredients in large mixer bowl on low speed for 15 seconds.  Beat on medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally for 30 seconds.  Pour into pan. 


Bake until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, about 65 minutes. 


Let cool for 10 minutes then remove from pan and cool on wire rack.  Let cool completely before slicing.
