Banana Nut Bread



I am a Banana Bread freak, which, many know. And I've gone threw my share of different Banana Bread recipes. I'm always trying to find a really tasty recipe for Banana Bread. The regular Banana Nut Bread has always been my favorite, and I thought I had already found a recipe that I thought was the best; Till I found this one.

I was reading a bread baking book the other day at my local Barnes and Noble when I came across this recipe. The recipe used only brown sugar, no white sugar, which I'd not really done in my banana breads. I may have used both, but each banana bread I'd made had white sugar in it. And theres also whole wheat flour in it, which makes it healthier (Banana Bread can be healthy!).

So I got the recipe and decided to try it out. And I am in love with this Banana Bread. I didn't think any recipe could top the one I usually use, but this stumped the old recipe. Everything in it just came out wonderfully and balanced well. Very, very delicious bread, thats all I got to say.




Recipe

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. grated nutmeg
1 tbsp. grated orange peel
2 large banana's, ripe
3/4 cup walnuts, chopped
2 large eggs
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
6 tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 cup whole milk


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 x 5" or a 8 x 4" loaf pan.

2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and orange peel. Set aside.

3. In a medium bowl, mix together brown sugar and melted butter. Add eggs and mix together. Add milk and mashed banana's into mixture, mixing well. Add to flour mixture being careful not to over mix.

4. Fold in 1/2 cup of the walnuts into batter. Pour into buttered pan and top with reserved walnuts. Bake for about 50-55 minutes or till done. Cool in pan for several minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.

Tarah,
This bread looks terrific. Count me in as one who is always trying new banana bread recipes. I love to incorporate whole wheat flour, and I like the idea of freshly grated nutmeg. Great site!
