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.

How to Make Pecan Banana Bread

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pre-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.
  • 2Also 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.
  • 3Mash your bananas and set aside.
  • 4In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt.
  • 5In the bowl of your stand mixer blend the butter and brown sugar.
  • 6Add the beaten eggs and mashed banana to the butter and sugar. Mix this well.
  • 7Add the flour mixture and just mix until moist. Don't over mix, it will get tough.
  • 8Put the batter, which will be very thick, into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 60-65 minutes.
  • 9When done stick a long scewer into the middle of the loaf. It if comes out clean it's done.
  • 10Let 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.
  • 11Enjoy!
