Banana Nut Bread

Needless to see, this is by far the most enjoyed bread. Every rookie baker starts their baking lessons by baking this bread! This is such a forgiving bread, even if you srcew up a bit in measurements, you will end up with delectable results.  This recipe can be transformed into muffins as well.  Who doesn’t like to wake up to a freshly baked bread, especially it is loaded with bananas and nuts? All you need is a cup of coffee or a glass of cold milk and a couple of slices of this bread and you are all set for the day.

I like to toast the leftover bread and slather the toasted slices with either butter or jam. Divine!

Here’s how I made it.

Banana Nut Bread
1 egg
½ cup mayonnaise
About 3 mashed bananas
1-1/2 cup flour
1 cup sugar
¾ cup chopped nuts(I used walnuts, use any nuts on hand, or omit nuts altogether.)
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt

 How to:
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Beat egg, mayonnaise and bananas until blended.
Combine remaining ingredients, mix until just moistened.
Transfer to a pre-greased loaf pan.
Bake for about 1 hour or do the toothpick test.
Cool in a pan for about 15 minutes on a wire rack.
Cool completely.

You could add 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips into the batter for that extra special banana bread. Or make glaze out of those chips and just drizzle over the slices.

Fond of Veggies? Add a cup or two of shredded zuccini/carrots to this bread.
