Jamaican Banana Nut Bread

Sandy Young


My friend Susan in Albuquerque gave me this recipe a few years back. Susan's source was her friend Jeanine, a former student of mine. It's so moist and delicious! It's a treasure because it came from two good friends, whom I love dearly.

40 Min


4 Tbsp
1 Tbsp
1 stick
butter, melted
1 1/2 c
granulated sugar
1 1/2 c
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 1/2 c
chopped pecans
bananas, mashed


1This is so easy!
2Preheat oven to 350.
3Mix vinegar and milk so that the milk will curdle. Actually, I have used 5 tablespoons of buttermilk instead of vinegar and milk. Works just as well!
4Add everything else, and pour into two loaf pans that have been either sprayed with baking spray or greased and floured.
5Bake about 40 minutes, depending on your oven. At our high altitude (6400 feet), it takes only about 35 minutes.
6The longer you have to bake the bread, the darker in color it will be. Delicious, especially warm with a little butter on it!
