banana nut bread
I grew up eating this banana nut bread recipe. It was something that was passed down from my grandma. This recipe will make 1 regular loaf or 2 mini loaves of banana nut bread.
We like to eat it warm. You can reheat it in your can microwave. Just heat piece for 15-20 seconds and then spread butter on it. Make sure to have a glass of milk ready. This is a great way to have your kids eat fruit.
Do you know that when you bananas are ripe, not green is when they are prime to make banana bread? They are sweeter (in my opinion). And easier to mash!
You can make mini loaves, wrap the loaves in aluminum foil and freeze (write the date on them and what bread it is). You can also give these for gifts for Christmas and other holidays. What neighbor would not like a warm loaf of banana bread?
