Banana Nut Bread

This is the worlds BEST banana bread ! I got this recipe when I was 19 . I was out in San Diego helping my sister pack up her house to move to Norfolk Navel base. While there her friend said you have to try this banana bread and shared the recipe with us. I have been making it ever since ! It is the best banana bread I have ever had. People beg me for this ! If you make it, give some to family and friends…they will love you forever…..and beg for you to make this for them again !!

  • 1 stick of softened butter
  • 1 cup sugar

cream these till light and fluffy

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup mashed banana
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest ( optional )
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk ( i like full fat buttermilk..but whatever you have or find will work)
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts ( plus more for the top of the breads)

Next add the eggs and bananas, mix well . Now add the flour, baking soda blend well. Now add the nuts.

prepare 2 – 8 x 5 bread pans. spray them very well then coat them with flour.

Divide the batter between the pans , sprinkle the tops with nuts. Bake 350 for about 40 minutes.
