How to Make Banana Nut Bread?

Making the bread is a snap.

  1. The first step is to mash up some overripe bananas and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Once the butter and sugar are frothy, add the eggs, heavy cream, and bananas, and continue mixing until smooth.
  3. Next, combine the flour, baking soda, and chopped nuts in a mixing bowl to create the batter.
  4. Bake the banana nut bread batter for 60 minutes in the oven.

What Kind of Nuts Do I Need to Use?

  • You should use walnuts instead of pecans in this recipe. They give the banana bread a nutty taste and a crispy texture. Walnut halves can be purchased and chopped into small bits. Then simply add them to the batter.
  • Pecan and pine nuts, which have a more earthy flavor and texture, are other options to consider. Because pine nuts are so tiny, they don’t require chopping.
