I had a whole lot of bananas which would have ended up in the garbage, if it wasnt for this banana bread!! I dint want to make a cake!....I wanted to make some banana bread...because I had a brand new loaf tin which remained unused!! So...a perfect time....and a perfect recipe......

1 cup (115 gms) pecan nuts or walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped
1 3/4 cups (230 gms) all purpose flour
3/4 cup (150 gms) granulated white sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 eggs. lightly beaten
1/2 cup(113 gms) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
3 ripe large bananas ( 1 1/2 cups)mashed well
1 tsp vanilla essence

  • Preheat oven to 300 deg F (180 deg C)
  • Butter and flour the bottoms and sides of a 9*5*3 inch(23*13*8 cms) loaf pan
  • place the nuts on a baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 mins or until slightly toasted. Cool and chop coarsely
  • In a large bowl combine flour, sugar baking powder, soda, salt, cinnamon and nuts. set aside

  • In a medium sized bowl combine mashed bananas,eggs, melted butter and vanilla ess.
  • With a rubber spatula gently fold the wet ingredients into dry ingredients.stir until just combined and the batter is thick and chunky

  • Bake until golden brown ( about 55 to 60 mins)  and an inserted toothpick comes out clean
  • Cool and then cut.

  • I ground my own cinnamon and then sieved it.(only because I dint have cinnamon powder at home :) )

enjoy your banana bread with a hot cup of tea!!
