Robin's Story

I was given this recipe in Culinary School by one of my Professors, and I can't get enough....This is her written biography...'This is my mom's dense, excellent and definitely unhealthy banana nut bread recipe. This is great at parties, but hazardous at home. Use any type of fat in place of the butter, such as shortening or oil. It works with brown or white sugar". I followed the recipe to the exact measurements, and I will have to admit that I almost ate the whole loaf at one sitting. HAZARDOUS!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This made the Test Kitchen smell amazing! The dense, nutty bread is oh-so-moist and will win over even the non-banana lovers in your life.

    Hi Robin, I'm new here and so far I love it. Now I know I can be a little brain dead once in awhile, i'll be the first one to admit it but i'm a little confused with the quantities of 3 items in this recipe, maybe you could clear it up for me. The 3 things are: the butter, eggs and walnuts. I'm totally confused. They're all a little confusing but especially the eggs. How do you get 3 and 1/4 eggs?? : ( I would appreciate any help you could give me because it really sounds good and i'd like to make it but I want to do it right. Thanks, Susan
