Banana Nut Bread

I am so excited, I found an awesome recipe to make banana nut bread! I’ve always heard it was hard to make so I’ve always been afraid to even look up a recipe. Lately I’ve been craving some banana nut bread and haven’t found anyone making any so I’m going to try one myself. The recipe I found looks simple and super yummy!


Unbelievably Moist Banana Bread


2 cups sugar

1 cup soft margarine or butter, (two 1/2 cup sticks of butter)

5 eggs

2 cups flour

6 tbsp buttermilk, (reg milk will work too)

2 tsps baking soda

1-1/2 cups ripe bananas, about 4-5 small

1 cup nuts, chopped (optional)

Prep Time 10 min

Cook Time 1.5 hours

Moist Banana Bread


Mix all ingredients together. Let mixture sit for 1 hour in the mixing bowl in room temperature. (Note: Due to banana size, the mixture may not all fit into one loaf pan; do not overflow your pan. Use two loaf pans for the extra batter)

Pour into greased loaf pan(s). Bake 60-65* minutes at 350 degrees. If using a bundt pan, bake for 50-60* minutes at 300 degrees. Ten minutes before final cooking time, check doneness with a toothpick. When toothpick comes out clean from the middle of the loaf, it is done or when the center of loaf is close to 195-200 degrees F. (Note: It’s okay to let the crust get very dark if cooked for longer, it is supposed to be and won’t hinder the taste).

Let stand until almost cool. Loosen bread from sides with a sharp knife and set
