Yummy Banana Bread

Every time I have bananas in the house and they get too ripe, I have this urge to make banana bread. I created this recipe based on another recipe I found online. I used whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose and added walnuts. Plus, I sprinkled an extra tablespoon of brown sugar to the top of the batter before baking. It gives it a really nice top crust.

Banana Bread
Serves 12
Instructions
2 cups whole wheat or all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 stick unsalted butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
3 medium overripe bananas
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup chopped walnuts
  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray a 9 x 5 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar. Beat in the eggs, bananas and vanilla extract.
     
  • Gradually add in the flour mixture, stirring until combined. Add the walnuts and mix well. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
     
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove bread from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
