Coming from my Great Great Grandmother Shaw this recipe was passed down through the generations. This bread surpasses any other banana bread that I have had. Try and see if you agree that the 1800's were a great time for some awesome cooks.

Ingredients

  • 1 c
    sugar
  • 1/2 c
    softened butter
  • 3 large
    really ripe black bananas
  • 2
    eggs
  • 1 tsp

  • 2 c
    flour
  • 1 c
    chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

How to Make Banana Nut Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Add sugar and butter and cream together in mixer. When light and fluffy add the eggs one at a time. Once mixture is again light and fluffy add the bananas one at a time. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Place prepared batter in an oiled bread pan.
  2. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until done. Ovens vary but my oven bakes the bread for one hour and turns it out beautifully. Slice when hot if you wish to make a mess of the loaf. Tastes oh so fantastic when you eat it hot with the melted butter. I find a serated knife helps me to not make so much of a mess of the loaf. Slice when cooled. Store in an airtight container. This bread can be frozen and thawed for that baked yesterday goodness.
