Recipe by veggie Jen
This banana nut bread is the closest I have tasted to my grandma's wonderful bread. Perfect as gifts for neighbors, friends and family too!

This is a great recipe, veggie Jen. I chose this recipe because it called for Bisquick baking mix instead of just plain flower, and I thought that sounded interesting. And the texture is positively wonderful, consistently light throughout (so many banana bread recipes I've tried don't bake evenly and have spots where it's more dense than in other parts). But it was a little too dry for our taste. I think I'd add a little more oil next time. Otherwise, this is a great banana bread recipe. Made for Spring 2014 Pick-A-Chef.
- 1 1⁄3 cups mashed very ripe bananas (2 large)
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 eggs
- 2 2⁄3 cups original Bisquick baking mix
- 1⁄2 cup chopped nuts
