Classic banana nut bread, straight from my grandma's kitchen!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 medium bananas, soft and ripe and mashed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup vegetable (or canola) oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup walnuts


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two 8×4-inch loaf pans; set aside.
  • 2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer (or a large bowl), combine the bananas, sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla; mix well on medium speed (or use a whisk to thoroughly combine). Add the flour mixture and mix on low (or use a whisk to combine) until completely blended. Stir in the walnuts.
  • 3. Divide the mixture into the two loaf pans. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a thin knife inserted into the center comes out clean. If the loaves begin to get too dark before they are done in the middle, cover with foil.
