Carolyn's notes for this recipe:
Everyone I've ever made this for has requested more!
Unlike in most banana bread recipes, I leave my mixer running the entire time I'm adding ingredients. Despite being dense, the bread tastes "fluffier" after baking.

Directions

1
Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease bottom only of loaf pan (9x5x3 inches). I use parchment paper for easy removal.
2
Mix sugar and butter in large mixing bowl.

Stir in eggs.

Add bananas and water.
3
Stir in remaining ingredients except nuts.

Then, stir in walnuts.
4
Pour batter into loaf pan and bake until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean; about 60 mins.
5
Cool 5 minutes, then loosen sides of loaf from pan and remove bread from pan.
6
Cool completely on cooling rack before slicing.
1 loaf = 20 - 24 slices

Thank you for sharing your recipe. I needed one that I had all the ingredients on hand. Bread moist, flavorful and has good texture.
