This is one of my husbands favorite recipes that I have been making for nearly the twenty years that we are married. It has remained unchanged because it is so perfect! Do try it for yourself.
I love the addition of cinnamon and nutmeg to alongside the banana, as it enhances the flavor of this quick bread. Eat it plain or even try it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! You won’t be displeased!
3 ripe bananas
1/3 cup melted butter
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tbsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Mash the bananas & melt the butter. Beat the egg with the bananas, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon & nutmeg. Add in the butter. Mix again. Add in the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Mix well. Stir in the chopped walnuts, reserving a few for garnishing the top.
Pour the batter into a well greased loaf pan.
Bake at 350 F for 50 minutes, or until you can pierce it with a knife or skewer comes out dry.
Let cool completely before slicing.
