Going Bananas and Nuts

There they were just sitting in the fruit bowl – 3 slightly overripe bananas and I could almost taste them in a freshly baked loaf of bread. But, Grenville had just used the remaining milk on his cereal, so I had to find a recipe which did not use milk...here it is from The Fannie Farmer Cookbook.

Banana Nut Bread
3 ripe bananas, well mashed
2 eggs, well beaten
2 C flour
¾ C sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
½ C chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a loaf pan (8 ½ x 4 ½ x 2 ½ in.). Mix bananas and eggs together in large bowl Stir in flour, sugar, salt and baking soda. Add walnuts and blend. Add batter to pan and bake for 1 hour. Remove and cool on rack.

F&P variation: Reduced sugar and added ½ C of homemade applesauce, also ½ tsp vanilla flavoring, and ¼ tsp cinnamon and nutmeg.

Delicious served warm or cooled with a cold glass of milk. (And the F&P kitchen smelled wonderful while it was baking)
