Banana Nut Bread

9 tablespoons of butter, softened

1 cup light brown sugar, packed, you may use pure cane sugar if you wish

Cream the butter and the sugar.

4 very ripe bananas, mashed

Add to the creamed mixture.

2 eggs

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

Add the eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and freshly grated nutmeg to the creamed mixture. Mix until blended.

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

1/4 of salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

¾ teaspoon baking soda

Sift ingredients together and add to the creamed mixture. Mix on low till blended.

¼ cup whole milk

Add milk and mix on low to blend

2/3 cup walnuts, chopped

Add walnuts to the mixture by gently folding into the batter.

Pour the batter into a buttered loaf pan.

Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for about 1 hour and 10 minutes. A tooth pick inserted should come out clean and the crust will be golden. Cool 10 minutes in the pan on a wire rack. Then cool until it’s warm on wire rack. Serve warm plain or spread with softened butter.

Bakers note: My ingredients were all at room temperature.
