banana bread

My first time using a gas stove! And I didn’t even burn anything down…



1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup walnuts

2 large eggs
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 ripe large bananas (about 1 1/2 cups mashed)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


1.Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C).

2.Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and chopped nuts. Set aside.In another bowl combine the mashed bananas, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla.

3.With a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, lightly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until combined and the batter is thick and chunky. Don’t overmix the batter or the bread with be tough!

4.Butter the bottom and sides of a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.Scrape batter into the pan. Bake until bread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 55 to 60 minutes.
