Makes one 9″ x 5″ loaf
2 C All-Purpose Flour
1.5 t Baking Soda
1/2 t Salt
4 large overripe bananas
1 C Sugar
3/4 C (1 1/2 sticks) Unsalted Butter, melted and cooled
2 Large Eggs
1 t Vanilla Extract
1/2 C Pecans, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly grease 9 x 5 loaf pan.
With the back of a fork, lightly mash two bananas in a small bowl.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Give it a good whisk to combine.
With an electric mixer fitted with a wire whisk, whip 2 bananas and sugar together for 2-3 minutes. You want to cream the bananas and removed all large pieces.
With the mixer running, stream in the melted butter. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well to combine.
Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Fold mashed bananas and nuts with a rubber spatula.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour until golden brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool bread in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.Print This Page
