Banana Pecan Loaf

Banana Pecan Loaf created by diner524

I slice this bread so thick when I eat it, it's almost embarrassing! This banana bread is rich, super moist and flavorful. It's hard to stop at just one slice.

ingredients

directions

  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in mashed bananas.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture. Fold in pecans.
  • Transfer batter to a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10 minutes before removing loaf from pan to a wire rack.
  • For an equally delicious spread: combine 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened, and 1 cup canned crushed pineapple, well drained. It's delicious as a spread for your banana bread.

    At Last, a full size loaf of banana bread! Not only does it make a full sized load but it's also delirious. I've been adding nuts to a lot of things lately and chose to swap out the pecans for chocolate chips :D. I used 1/2 a cup of Splenda brown blend for the sugar and all else was as ask (except the chips of course). In this recipe the 3 banana's was enough to produce a very nicely banana flavored bread. Made on Life is Good's recommendation for Best of 2013 Event.

    Very moist and wonderful bread/muffins!!! I made 1/3 of the recipe, as I only had 1 very ripe banana left and it is usually only me that eats it. I decided to make it into muffins instead of a big loaf and froze the other 4 I didn't eat. I plan to pull one out in the morning, wrap it in foil and reheat them. Thanks for sharing the recipe!! Made for 2013 Spring PAC event.

    Yum! I saw your name/recipes posted in the Contest and Events forum (Pick A Chef) and browsed through your recipes. I have since followed your blog and Pinterest. Your recipes look fantastic! This is the first recipe I tried and it is going to be a huge hit. I know this because I ended up eating that thick slice that I photographed. I'm trying not to eat more because I made it for my daughter whom I am picking up from college for a weekend home. Excellent banana bread. Great flavor and consistency and perfect amount of nuts. Mine baked for 60 minutes. Thank you for posting!
