Ingredients You'll Need
1-1/2 C. sugar (I used light brown, lightly packed)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used melted butter)
3 medium ripe bananas, mashed (about 1-1/4 C.)
3/4 orange juice
3 C. all purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 C chopped walnuts
In a bowl, combine the sugar, oil/butter and eggs. Mix well.
Stir in bananas and orange juice.
Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl; add to banana mixture, mixing just until moistened.
Stir in walnuts.
Pour into two greased 8" X 4" loaf pans. ( I lined mine with parchment paper instead.)
Bake at 325F for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to a wire rack and cool completely.
Yield: 2 loaves.
