Kathy's Banana Nut Bread Notes
When our children were small, we ended up with a lot of bananas that were too ripe. So, I experimented and created my own recipe for banana nut bread. The girls still love it.
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 3 over-ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts preferrable)
- 1/2 cup raisins
- for topping, 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- for topping, 3 tablespoons sugar
Serves / Yields
1 large loaf pan
Preheat oven 350°
Combine flour, baking powder, salt and soda.
In separate bowl, melt butter and add sugar, eggs, and bananas. Add to flour mixture and mix well.
Add raisins and nuts last. Pour into well greased large bread pan. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar topping over dough.
Bake approximately 60 minutes, or until center is done. Remove from oven and let stand in pan 10 minutes. Then remove from pan to cool on wire rack.
If you sprinkle a little flour on raisins, it will keep them from sinking to the bottom.
