Banana Nut Bread Recipe

This is another all time favorite banana bread recipe, this time we will be adding nuts to the banana bread batter. Again the banana nut bread recipe is simple one.

For This Banana Nut Bread Recipe You Will Need:

1 cup of walnuts
1 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
3/4 cup of white sugar
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup of melted butter
4-5 ripe bananas
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1. First you need to prepare the nuts. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place the nuts on the baking sheet. You should bake the nuts for a little less than 10 minutes until they are lightly toasted. Then chop them to pieces, you will use later for you banana nut bread. Now leave the oven on and continue...

2. Take a large bowl and throw in the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nuts. Now take another bowl (it can be smaller) and mix in the wet ingredients. Mix in mashed bananas, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla. Now you can mash the bananas before with a for. Or if they are not that soft and ripe you can use a stick hand blender. Or you can use the blender after you put bananas, eggs and butter into the bowl.

3. Now mix in the stuff from banana bowl into the flour bowl. Mix so there are no flour lumps left. Pour the banana batter into the bread pan and bake it for around one hour. You can test if your bread is ready by sticking a toothpick into the bread. When it comes out clean, your banana nut bread is ready.

The banana nut bread recipe just rocks :).

when you say all purpose flour do you mean plain flour or self-raising?

bm 29.06.2009. 04:25

plain flour

The recipe tastes great but it is taking waaay more than 1 hour to bake and I'm working with a newer oven....

@Ab - all purpose flour is the ordinary plain flour that can be used in all sorts of recipes.

@Heather - that's weird, mine is always done in one hour.

do you think this recipe would work with soy flour? .. thanks

I would recommend splitting this into 2 smaller bread pans or muffin tins.

I tried using just one bread pan and had trouble getting the middle to cook without burning the top.

Otherwise, I really enjoyed this recipe.

when cooking with baking soda you CANNOT let it sit. Once you mix in the baking soda chemical reactions occur and you need to put it in the oven instantly.

hi it would be nice if you all said how much heat it should be baked on and things like that

@Heather & Flour;
Elevation can be a factor with baking times. This is why some boxes of pre-made items suggest to add a tablespoon of flour (or the appropriate ingredient) if you are above 3500 ft.
Splitting the recipe into 2 pans or not could also be why it is taking more/less time to bake.
Pretty simple concepts here.
