  • place the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute or until the sugar is completely mixed into the butter. Add the eggs and mix for 1 minute, or until the batter is smooth. Add the bananas and mix for 1 minute or until no large chunks remain. The batter will be lumpy but the pieces of banana should all be 1/2 inch or smaller.

  • Stir in walnuts. (optional).
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven heat to 350 F and bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Remove the bread from the pan and place it on a cooling rack. (If you let the bread cool in the pan the bottom will become soggy.).
