Tom's Favorite Banana Bread

My husband is a great fan of banana bread, so I took a couple of his "sort of" favorites and came up with this one, which he raves about. You may use all vanilla extract if you don't have, or can't find the Vanilla Nut extract. Look for it if you can, it's a really nice flavoring.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Butter and flour(or line with parchment paper)loaf pan.
  3. Whisk together dry ingredients in small bowl. Mix bananas, milk, vanilla and vanilla nut extract in another bowl.
  4. Beat butter and sugar in mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add one egg at a time, mixing until incorporated. Then alternate mixing in dry ingredients in two batches starting and ending with dry ingredients.
  5. Stir in nuts, if using. Pour into prepared pan.
  6. Bake for approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes, (checking at 1 hour) until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

This was wonderful! It came out great. I used the vanilla nut extract. My family is a huge fan of it and I highly recomend trying it. I also added some cinnamon and chocolate chips. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Banana bread is one of our favorite's and this one was very good! I used white flour, vanilla extract instead of nut, and chopped pecans. Have had trouble when baking banana bread and it being a little undercooked in the center but this one baked up nicely. Thank you hon for putting this recipe together and sharing it with us!
