Breakfast this morning is hot-out-of the-oven banana nut bread. The house smells delicious!
Banana Nut Bread
2 cups all-purpose flour (or bread flour)
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 stick butter, softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
4 Tbs. sour cream (or plain yogurt)
6 mashed ripe bananas
1/2 – 1 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
Combine dry ingredients in a small bowl; set aside. In a separate mixing bowl cream together butter, sugar and salt. Add eggs, vanilla and sour cream; mix well. Add dry ingredients. Add bananas. Add nuts. Mix until well combined.
You can make this recipe using a blender, or you can mix everything by hand.
Grease 1 large bunt pan, or 6 mini bunt pans. Pour batter evenly into prepared pan(s). Bake at 350º for 1 hour (40 minutes for mini bunt pans). Insert a toothpick into the center of loaf; if the toothpick comes out dry bread is done, if not, cook an additional 10 minutes and check again.
