Banana Pecan Bread For A KitchenAid Stand Mixer

Family Favorites


I recently purchased a KitchenAid mixer and have been having a great time trying all of the recipes that were included. All have been winners, so far, including this wonderful banana nut bread that I made this past weekend. Makes a large 9x5 loaf. Delicious!

Add eggs and vanilla. Turn to speed 4 and beat about 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl. Turn to speed 6 and beat about 1 1/2 minutes.
