Description

I will admit that I adore traditional banana nut bread, but I always feel as though there is something missing. In this recipe, I added cinnamon and nutmeg to provide a warmth and depth of flavor that cannot be achieved any other way. For those of you who say, “I do not like bananas,” you should still give this recipe a try. My husband said that it reminded him of carrot cake!

Ingredients

  • 10 Tablespoons Softened Butter/Margarine
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 2  Eggs
  • 4  Egg Whites
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 4  Very Ripe Bananas, Peeled And Slightly Mashed
  • 3-½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoons Nutmeg
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Chopped Walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon All-purpose Flour

Preparation

Preheat oven temperature: 350 F
Yield: Two 9-inch loaves

1. Whip the butter/margarine in a large bowl using your stand mixer for 2 minutes, until light and fluffy.
2. Add the sugars and mix until creamed.
3. Add the whole eggs. Stir to combine. Add the egg whites one at a time, beating well between each addition.
4. Add the vanilla then add the bananas in two batches, beating well between each addition. Allow it to mix together for 2 minutes.
5. In a medium sized bowl sift together the 3 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sifting here is very important so don’t skip this step. This will allow the bread to be lighter.
6. With the mixer on low speed, add 1/3 of the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. Add 1/2 of the milk and mix to combine. Repeat with another addition of the flour and then the remaining milk. Add the last 1/3 of the flour last. Mix until just combined.
7. Place the walnuts in a small bowl and sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon flour. Stir to coat. This will ensure the nuts are throughout the bread and not just on the bottom.
8. Using a rubber spatula, stir the nuts into the bread mixture.
9. Spray the bottom of two 9×5-inch loaf pans with non-stick spray. Evenly divide the batter between the two pans.
10. Bake for 1 hour.
11. Remove from the oven, set pans on a rack and allow bread to cool in the pans for 10 minutes before turning out.
12. Carefully slice and enjoy!
