Banana Nut Bread

Today is St. Patrick's Day. It is windy as all get out outside, so I am staying in. I decided to bake bread today. First on the menu is Banana Nut Bread.

I have always loved banana bread and what a great comfort food it can be. I hope you enjoy this recipe and feel free to add whatever you desire to spice it up such as chocolate chips, raisins, etc.

Recipe: Banana Nut Bread

1 cup sugar
1 stick butter, softened
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla
2 extra ripe regular sized bananas, or 3 small bananas, mashed
1/2 cup nuts, chopped (i used walnuts)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan. I used 4 mini loaf pans. Set aside.

Cream butter and sugar together until smooth.

Add eggs one at a time.

Add flour, baking soda, and mix until just blended.

Then add mashed bananas and vanilla. Mix until just combined.

Fold in nuts or other ingredients of your choice.

Pour into loaf pan and sprinkle loaf (s) with sugar.

Bake for 45 min if using regular sized loaf pan or 30 min if using mini loaf pans. Toothpick inserted should come out clean.
