Moist Banana Nut Bread

"I got this from a recipe club I was in.It is the only banana bread my family will let me make.We prefer it without nuts,but it is great with chopped pecans for the nut lovers.It is very moist.I keep over-ripe bananas in the freezer,so I can make it at a moments notice.It is a great after-school snack,but it never lasts long at our house!"

  1. Can you use self rising flour with it and have the same results?


  1. Laura this was sooo moist, and excellent! My DH was so mad that I gave a loaf away to my best friend. My house smelled wonderful while this was baking. Thanks for the recipe, it was very easy too.
  2. This was super easy, good flavor, good crust etc. I guess I sort of missed the more rustic, chunky interior you get when it is made by hand instead of mixed in the food processor, which is why I give this 4 stars instead of 5. I'll still make this again. The speed is hard to beat!
  3. Well despite the batter being too big for my pan, this bread turned out AWESOME! The most delicious, moist banana bread I have ever eaten! I will definitely make this again... trying in a bigger pan next time! :-) I would definitely recommend this recipe to anyone who is tired of dry rubbery banana bread... this one is almost like cake - YUM!!!!
  4. This was really moist!! I made muffins instead of a loaf, the kitchen smelled wonderful while they were baking .. thank you
  5. Somehow this turned out a little dry for me, which I don't understand since everyone is raving about it being moist. On the whole it was good tasting-just a little less moisture. I did think that the time specified to bake was a little much, if I had taken out my pan from the oven in 45mins. it would hv been better I think. I did add a half cup of ground walnuts. Thanks!


  1. totally yummy everytime! I use 4 egg whites instead of 2 eggs, fat free sour cream and smart balance 50/50 butter blend to cut some fat and it's still amazing! I also add about 3/4 c finely shopped pecans to add a little nutty flavor... enjoy it!
  2. after trying too many recipes for Banana Bread, I found this GEM of a recipe, adding it to my favorites as "the Best Banana Bread". its so moist and the flavor...yum !! I use 2 Tablespoons of plain yogurt instead of Sour know how plain yogurt gets some clear liquid after a while? that liquid works well along with the yogurt itself. and I use the smaller loaf pans... this recipe makes 2 of those. I give this a 10!!
