Baking Banana Bread

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Always on the look-out for yummy recipes. Decided to try this one on my first day of summer vacation.

Hey! There's a slice missing!

Banana Bread
Source: America’s Test Kitchen


2 cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup sugar
½ cup toasted coarsely chopped walnuts
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
3 ripe bananas
2 large eggs, beaten
6 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup buttermilk or plain yogurt


1. Butter a non-stick bread pan, then flour well.
2. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix well and set aside.
3. In another medium bowl, coarsely mash 3 ripe bananas.
4. Add the remaining wet ingredients to the mashed bananas and mix well.
5. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until flour is well-moistened.
6. Pour mixture into prepared loaf pan.
7. Back at 350 degrees for 45 - 50 minutes.

* Instead of walnuts (blech) I substituted mini chocolate chips (yum).


  1. Not a walnut fan, I take it? Do you like pecans??

    How is it that you are on holidays? Today was our last day with the munchkins, and staff have to go in tomorrow. Blah. Then I move my classroom down the hall. Double blah. Then I can enjoy!

  2. I'm not a fan of nuts or raisins in baking. Yuck!

    We had our last day with the kids last Friday and our PD day on Monday. Tuesday was my first day off. :)

  3. P.S. This banana bread was still good on the third, yes third, day. Mmmmmm.
