MAKE SURE YOUR INGREDIENTS ARE AT ROOM TEMPERATURE!

I have made this on various occasions. It always rises up beautifully and the banana fragrance from this bread is really enticing. This is for a Christmas potluck for my husband's work. I hope everyone enjoys it.

Ingredients

2 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
non-aluminum baking soda
1/4 tsp
celtic sea salt
1/2 c
goat butter
3/4 c
lightly packed brown sugar
2 large
eggs, beaten
2 c
mashed ripe bananas
1/2 c
pecans, course chop

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pre-heat the oven to 350'F. I live at 5,000 ft. so I put my oven at 325'F. I cut back a little on the baking soda and sugar.
2
Also I used a large loaf pan 10x5", you can use a 9x5" loaf pan here also. I sprayed it with non-stick oil. Flour the pan and then put a piece of parchment in the bottom and spray oil that too. This will ensure this won't stick.
3
Mash your bananas and set aside.
4
In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt.
5
In the bowl of your stand mixer blend the butter and brown sugar.
6
Add the beaten eggs and mashed banana to the butter and sugar. Mix this well.
7
Add the flour mixture and just mix until moist. Don't over mix, it will get tough.
8
Put the batter, which will be very thick, into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 60-65 minutes.
9
When done stick a long scewer into the middle of the loaf. It if comes out clean it's done.
10
Let the bread cool on a wire rack for at least 20-30 minutes. Remove and then set on the wire rack and let it cool further. Refrigerate to keep fresh.

Enjoy!
