Banana bread

_DSC1109

 

There are many recipes for banana bread and I have tried plenty over the years. My daughter Sumaya wanted to make banana bread and also gave quite a few variations a try until she settled on this one.  She makes it all the time and each time adds her own touch.

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter

1 1/4 cups sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups mashed bananas

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup milk

2 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

2 cups chopped walnuts

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 cup mini chocolate chips-optional

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Put all dry ingredients in a bowl and stir.

Mix sugar and butter until fluffy, add bananas, eggs and milk.

Add half of dry ingredients, mix well, add other half mix well.

By hand mix in 1 cup walnuts and mini chocolate chips if desired. Grease 2 loaf pans, pour half of mixture into one pan and half into the other. Sprinkle the remaining walnuts over the two loaves.

Sumaya prefers to use two loaf pans which makes the bread shorter but it cooks evenly and is very moist.

Bake for 40-50  minutes or until done. Remove from oven and let cool.

Slice bread and serve.

  3. My husband makes a healthy version with almond flour. Yours looks a lot better. He’s anti-flour. N.
