We are big banana bread fans, and I make it quite frequently. However, for the past few months, I've been trying combinations such as zucchini-banana, coconut-banana, etc. It was nice to rediscover good old banana nut bread again! This was so easy to make, too! I wasn't sure about how the butter was supposed to be (softened, melted, etc.), so I did a combination of both in the microwave. This made a nice sized loaf that took about 55 minutes to bake. Thanks for bringing me back to basics! Made for PRMR tag game.

You just can't go wrong with a classic like this. It made a very well shaped loaf with a perfect moist texture. I cut the sweetness to 3/4 cup of Splenda which worked very well for me and used 3 bananas as mine were all pretty small. Used walnuts chopped small to really spread them around. Final result?: Total yum!

Delicious banana flavor; moist inside crumb, and a crusty sweet exterior crust. Made with butter, four small (1 1/2 cups) mashed bananas (previously frozen), and 3/4 cup toasted pecans. Baked in a metal pan for 45 minutes. My house smelled heavenly while the banana bread baked! Tagged for PRMR, due 09/05/13
