Banana Nut Bread

I am nuts about this banana nut bread!  I make it more often than I care to admit.   This past Christmas I baked a few loaves for some of my neighbors.  I've tried other recipes, but this one is the best, just bake it and see.  I make it with pitted prunes; the sweetness and moistness are incomparable.

    Banana Nut Bread
    Yield: 1 loaf

Ingredients:  2 large eggs, lightly beaten

2 large mashed ripe bananas

1/2 cup unsalted butter melted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/4 cup pitted prunes chopped


In a large bowl combine the first four ingredients; stir well and set aside.  In separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, and sugar; add to banana mixture, stirring until well blended.  Stir in pecan and pitted prunes.

Pour mixture into a greased and floured 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 3 inch loaf pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until inserter comes out clean.  Cover with aluminum foil the last 15 minutes to prevent over browning.

Enjoy with a good cup of coffee or tea
