Banana Orange Nut Bread

I've had this recipe for so long, I can't even remember where I got it.

This is a very forgiving recipe. Kid friendly. Measurements don't have to be exact and you can just dump everything in the same bowl. Some times I throw in a handful of coconut flakes, some chopped almonds, or even use mandarin orange juice and rind. Loaves freeze beautifully. A good recipe for gift giving at Christmas time.

Serves:

4 mini loaves

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

3 Hr 30 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

2 c
a.p. flour
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/4 tsp
salt
1/2 c
soft butter
2/3 c
sugar
2
eggs
1 1/3 c
mashed bananas, very ripe is best
1/4 tsp
orange zest
1 1/2 Tbsp
orange juice
1 c
sliced, chopped almonds (optional)
raw sugar for topping

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine all ingredients (except raw sugar) in large bowl and mix thoroughly.
2
Spray non stick 4 mini loaf pans with PAM. Each mini loaf pan will hold about 2/3 cup mixture.
3
Sprinkle raw sugar on top.
4
Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 30-35 minutes. Test centers with toothpick or wooden skewer, it should come out clean.
5
If tops get too brown during baking, cover lightly with foil. (This usually happens when I bake 2 larger loaves for 45-50 min.) PS: I found using dark pans make the sides and bottom get too brown.
