I love simple banana bread recipes so when I saw a delicious-looking Martha Stewart banana bread recipe on Wives with Knives, I was excited to get baking. My son and I had a fun time creating this bread together and he and my daughter gobbled it right up when she got home from school. It was moist and delicious with great banana flavor. Thanks for the excellent recipe, Cathy.
Banana Nut Bread:
- 1/2 cup of butter, softened
- 1 /2 cup of white sugar
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of flour
- 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup very ripe bananas, mashed (I used 2 bananas)
- 1/2 cup of sour cream
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup of pecans, chopped
How to Make Banana Nut Bread
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place the butter, sugar, vanilla, and eggs together in a bowl and beat with a mixer on low until creamy.
Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and mix well.
Slowly add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture. Add the bananas, sour cream, and nuts, stir well to combine.
Pour into a 9×5 loaf pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool on a rack. Slice and serve slathered with butter. Enjoy.
