This is a very dense moist banana bread. I have been making it for years and everyone raves over it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom only of loaf pan.
  2. Mix sugar and margarine in 2 1/2 quart bowl. Stir in eggs until blended. Add bananas and water; beat 30 seconds. Stir in remaining ingredients except nuts just until moistened; stir in nuts. Pour into pan.
  3. Bake until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 8-inch loaf 1 1/4 hours, 9-inch loaf 55 to 60 minutes; cool 5 minutes. Loosen sides of loaf from pan; remove and cool completely before slicing.

Followed the recipe right on down & did leave out the nuts, wanting, as I did, the full flavor of the bananas for the bread! Then, the very first slice I had was spread with a thin layer of sweet potato butter, & I was in heaven! Love your bread, & will be keeping the recipe around! Thanks so much!
