My mother has been making this banana bread recipe for as long as I can recall and it was passed along to her by my 90-year-old (and then some) Great Aunt Lucille, so take note as a Southern family recipe like this is a keeper.
Also? This is so not low fat, so if you’re counting calories, points, whatever, you should probably just skip over this recipe.
Banana Nut Bread
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp soda
2 eggs beaten
2 or 3 ripe bananas (the riper, the gushier, the blacker the better in my opinion)
3/4 cup oil
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (Optional…my girls don’t like nuts in anything so I leave them out. You can also add a dash of black walnut flavoring.)
3 tbsp buttermilk
Lightly grease two small loaf pans or one large loaf pan. Mix together very well (until you get all the banana lumps out.)
Bake at 325 degrees for 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted.
Makes a great gift!
