How to Make Luscious Banana Nut Bread

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place softened butter and cream cheese in large mixing bowl; add sugars and beat until light and fluffy.
  • 2Add eggs, one at a time, and beat together. Pour in mashed bananas, half 'n half and vanilla; mix just until blended.
  • 3In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, soda and salt. Add to banana mixture, 1/2 at a time, and mix until combined. Add the chopped nuts and stir into banana batter.
  • 4Pour batter into a large, greased bread pan; put into preheated oven and bake approximately 1 hour, or until knife comes out clean and loaf is golden brown. WATCH and do not overcook.

    TIP: It isn't necessary (in my opinion), but bread slices may be topped with softened butter or cream cheese.
