Banana Walnut Bread

READY IN: 2hrs
YIELD: 1 loaf




  • Preheat oven to 250°. Lightly spray pan with cooking spray, then coat lightly with flour and set aside.
  • Chop the walnuts, if necessary, and put in a large bowl. Add dry ingredients--flour through salt--and stir to combine.
  • In a medium bowl, blend or whisk together the butter, eggs and vanilla. It doesn't need to be completely smooth, just blended well. Stir into the dry ingredients. Add the bananas and stir thoroughly. The batter will be quite stiff.
  • Transfer batter to prepared pan and bake at 250° for one hour. Rotate pan, if needed, raise temperature to 350° and bake for another 20 minutes. Turn oven off and let bread rest in cooling oven for 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for minutes before serving. To store, let cool completely and keep, tightly covered, in refrigerator up to one week.
