One of Mom's favourite breakfast foods is bananas. Sometimes a few stick around a bit too long and get brown and soft. Don't throw them away, throw them into a batter and make some Banana Nut Bread.
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup mashed bananas
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Grease and flour one large or two small loaf pans. Pour in ingredients and bake in a 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes on the top rack. Remove when brown on top and firm to the touch.
Cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Store in plastic wrap or foil to keep moist.
This was a good recipe for Mom to help with. She mashed the bananas, greased the pans, and stirred in the nuts. Mom has always like baking, so it was a fun activity we could do together.
