Banana Walnut Bread

I don’t know about you, but this quarantine has made me very open to baking. I am a self proclaimed NON baker. In fact, I destroy every sweet thing I try to bake. I blame it on my lack of love for sweets—the one thing my hubby absolutely loves in this world!

I figured since I am here at home-for who knows how long- that I should try to evolve and sharpen my baking skills. I have a feeling Troy is going to be very excited about this new outlook on sweets.

Wish me every ounce of luck!

Happy Eating!


2 c flour

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 c softened butter

1/2 c brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs, beaten

2 c mashed ripe bananas

1 cup walnuts l, chopped

1/2 tbs cinnamon

1 tsp allspice

1/4 tsp nutmeg


Preheat oven to 375.

In a bowl, sift the dry ingredients together- flour, salt, and baking soda.

In a separate mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugars. Once combined, add in the eggs and mashed bananas and mix thoroughly.

Next, add the walnuts and spices and stir to combine. Slowly fold in your dry ingredients-making sure not to over mix.

Pour your batter into a buttered loaf pan and bake for 45-50 minutes-until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.

Let the bread cool before serving.

Enjoy with a pad of butter or your favorite jam.
