Banana bread is a type of quick-bread or cake. This recipe yields a dense and moist banana bread, studded with walnuts.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  3. Whisk the eggs, and gradually beat them into the butter mixture.
  4. Mix in one third of the flour mixture, followed by half the banana. Continue alternating in this way until all the dry mixture and mashed banana is incorporated.
  5. Stir in the walnuts.
  6. Grease and line 2 loaf pans. Divide batter evenly between pans. Sprinkle the tops with additional turbinado sugar.
  7. Bake at 350°F for at least 1 hour. After this point, check the banana bread every 10 minutes or so until it is done. It will be browned, and a skewer inserted into the center of the loaf should come out clean with no more than moist crumbs attached.
  8. Let cool to room temperature in the pans. Unmold.

Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]

  • The quantity of walnuts may be increased or decreased as desired.
