    Marz's Note:

    Dusting the top prior to baking with Demerara sugar, will make a caramelized topping. You can sub the pecans for the walnuts. Got this recipe from a Williams-Sonoma cookbook.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F Butter and flour a 9X5 loaf pan.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl using a fork, mash the bananas. You should have 11/3 cups. In a separate bowl, stir together the all purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking powder baking soda, salt, nutmeg, orange zest and nuts, set aside.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until blended. Stir the brown sugar, butter, and milk. Add the dry ingredients in 3 batches alternatively with the mashed bananas in 2 batches, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients, just until moistened. Be careful not to overmix!
    4. 4
      Pour the batter into the prepared pan smoothing the top with a rubber spatula. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. If the top begins to brown too much, cover with a sheet of aluminum foil the last 15 minutes of baking.
    5. 5
      Transfer to a wire rack and let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Turn out into wire rack and let cool completely, before slicing.

      ~PAC Spring 2008~ Delicious banana bread! The toasted walnuts and orange zest really do stand out, flavor-wise, and give this an edge over ordinary banana bread. This recipe makes an incredibly moist loaf. Highly recommended!
