Banana Nut Bread
Updated: Apr 27
This is actually my Grandmother recipe; I have all her cookbooks and this recipe was stuck in one of her books on a piece of paper in her handwriting. I have made it too and it's great.
1 3/4 cup of unbleached flour
2 1/3 teaspoon of baking powder
1 cup of banana pulp
2/3 cup of raw sugar
2/3 cup of chopped pecans
1/3 cup of cubed butter - (5 1/3 tablespoons)
3/4 teaspoon of lemon rind or orange rind
1/2 teaspoon of salt
In a large bowl mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
In the stand mixer cream together the butter, sugar and lemon rind. Next, add the eggs to the mixer and blend well. Now add the flour into the mixture in three parts alternating with banana pulp: blend until smooth. Now fold in the pecans.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Grease a bread loaf pan and place dough in pan. Bake for about 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing.
Enjoy Cooking and Thanks, Grandma.
