Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Banana Nut Bread

See those bananas? For my banana nut bread recipe, I wouldn't use them any greener than those. In fact, I will use them when they are nearly solid black, as long as they're not rotten, squishy black, just a firm black. There is a difference. Good, ripe bananas are essential to getting the desired very-banana flavor in your banana nut bread.


From my vintage Betty Crocker cookbook!
I'm surprised these two pages aren't stuck together. That does tend to be a problem for me.

P.S.  I used chopped walnuts. This was delicious! And because I had so many ripe bananas, I had to make three large loaves!

this is one of bob's favorites.. and i agree on the bananas, mother always used the black ones and she used them in home made icecream. here banana ice cream was divine. others use the yellow ones and not near as good. this looks so easy i could do it

I do like banana bread, though I must say I am tempted to try the dried apricot version!

That was always my favorite quick bread, too. I loved it hot out of the oven...oh my! You can always freeze ripe bananas until you have enough, too. YUMMY!

Love seeing a recioe that has been used proving that it is well loved. Bananas don't last here long enough for baking banana bread. I wish.
