I LOVE banana walnut bread. Especially when it’s still warm from the oven. The recipe for this is super simple to make.
We buy bananas once a week when doing our grocery shopping for the week. Normally we go through them within the first few days of buying them.
I hate to see bananas go bad, so when I see them starting to turn and get soft I always make a loaf of banana bread. I love nuts so I started adding walnuts to the loaf and its so delicious.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt. Stir together to combine.
I a separate bowl combine margarine and sugar. Mix together until fluffy. Add in bananas, eggs & milk. Mix well.
Add 1/2 of the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until flour in mixed in. Add the remaining half of the ingredients along with 1/2 of the walnuts. Do not over-mix.
Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and top with remaining walnuts.
Bake for 50-55 minutes. To know if its done you can inert a toothpick in the center and if it comes out clean its done.
- 1 3/4 Cups bread flour
- 2 Tsp baking powder
- 1/2 Tsp baking soda
- 1/2 Tsp salt
- 3 Ripe bananas
- 2/3 Cup sugar
- 1/3 Cup margarine softened
- 2 Tbsp milk
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Cup walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir together to combine.
In another medium bowl combine margarine and sugar. Mix together until light and fluffy. Add in bananas, eggs and milk. Mix well.
Add 1/2 of the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix until the flour is mixed in and add the remaining half of the dry ingredients and 1/2 of the walnuts. Do not over mix.
Pour batter into a greased loaf pan ( I use parchment paper in my loaf pan). Top the batter with the remaining walnuts.
Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Let it sit and cool for 10 minutes.
*I like to use bruised bananas in this recipe. They are ripe, soft and easy to mash. If you don’t have bread flour you can use all purpose flour. I store our flour and walnuts in the freezer when we are not using them for longer storage.
