Why I Love This Recipe

You can just mix this recipe up without using a mixer. I used an old fashioned potato masher to mash the ripened bananas first. Then I mix the rest of the recipe with a large wooden spoon.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 or 5 ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup unsalted melted butter
3/4 to 1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
3/4 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat the oven to 350°F degrees. Using your favorite wooden spoon mix the melted butter into the mashed bananas in a large glass mixing bowl. Then mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Add the baking soda and salt last to you bowl mix well but do not over mix. No longer than 2 or minutes. Add the flour and mix. Add the chopped walnuts last and fold them into the batter.

Pour mixture into a greased 4×8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a wire rack before slicing

Serve with honey butter with your favorite hot tea or coffee.
