Weekly Recipe ~ Missy's Banana Bread

This Banana Bread is great for breakfast or with a cup of hot tea in the evening. It is so easy but there are a few key ingredient modifications that make it irresistible!


1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 Cups Flour
2 Eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
3 ripe bananas
1/2 cup walnuts

Yummy Modifications:

1. I use fresh ground hard red wheat flour.
2. I use REAL butter, no margarine!
3. I use unbleached natural raw sugar or sucanat.
4. I use VERY ripe bananas (almost mushy)like these:


Cream butter and sugar together. Mix in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Combine dry and wet ingredients. Mix in bananas with mixer until smooth or desired texture. Stir in walnuts. Transfer to greased loaf pan and bake on 350 for 50-55 minutes.

The finished product is delicious. This is one of those quick and easy recipes that is perfect for coffee with company. While baking, the bread makes your house smell warm and inviting. Enjoy!
