Banana Nut Bread


Banana-nut bread should be tender and aromatic, but its consistency should not be too dry, and the aroma should not cause thirst. Although, of course, it is very tasty to drink such bread with a glass of milk, but this glass should not appear as an inevitable necessity, but rather as a pleasant addition to its rich taste. Banana bread is made from fully ripened (and maybe even a little overripe, covered with brown spots) bananas. This dish allows thrifty housewives to very successfully get rid of excess bananas that are already overripe. Overheating bananas can even be frozen - this will not affect the quality of banana bread. Just let them thaw out by taking them out of the freezer before cleaning.

According to this recipe, 3 loaves or 10 mini-loaves are obtained. Such bread can be served instead of cookies.

To make banana-nut bread, we need:

banana puree - 1.5 tbsp.
ghee - 1 tbsp.
vegetable oil - 0.5 tbsp.
egg - 2 pcs.
vanilla sugar - 1 tsp
flour - 2 tbsp.
sugar - 1 tbsp.
cinnamon - 1.5 tsp
soda - 1 tsp
salt - 0.5 tsp
chopped walnuts - 1 tbsp.

How to make banana-nut bread:

1. Preheat the oven.
We take the ripe bananas, mashed them. In mashed potatoes, add 1 tsp. ghee, vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla, mix everything well until smooth.
2. Mix the flour, sugar, cinnamon, soda and salt and add to the banana mixture. Then add most of the chopped walnuts.
3. Pour the dough into a greased bread pan. Sprinkle with the remaining nuts and sugar, grease with the remaining ghee.
4. Bake for 60 minutes. Readiness can be checked with a wooden skewer (match) - stick it in the center of the bread, if the skewer comes out dry and without sticking lumps of dough, the bread is baked.

Sweet, rosy banana bread is a delicious home-made pastry that will not cause trouble in the kitchen and will help out as a hearty breakfast, snack or treat for tea drinking. Today I propose to cook a simple, yeast-free version of banana bread with walnuts.

The bread prepared according to this recipe turns out to be incredibly soft and fragrant, with crumbly, fluffy and juicy crumb, a golden crust and delicious specks of nuts. Such bread is beautiful both in warm and chilled form, and if you let it brew for the night - the next day the bread will become even tastier. Give it a try!

For cooking, you will need such components.

Combine softened butter and sugar and beat with a mixer for several minutes until smooth.

Continuing to beat the mixture, add 1 chicken egg and beat the mixture for 40-60 seconds.

Then add a second chicken egg and beat the mixture for another 1-2 minutes, until the mass becomes airy and uniform.

Mash 2 large ripe bananas with a fork to a lumpy smoothie and add to the mixture of eggs, sugar and butter. Small specks of banana slices will give the finished bread an even more appetizing taste.

Gradually mix the sifted wheat flour and baking powder into the mixture. Add vanilla sugar, ground cinnamon and, if desired, 0.25 tsp. salt.

Carefully mix walnuts, cut into large pieces, into the finished dough.

Pour the dough into a greased and lined with baking paper baking dish and gently smooth.

Place the dough in an oven preheated to 170 degrees and bake for 50-60 minutes. Check the readiness of the bread by piercing the crumb with a wooden skewer or a toothpick. If the skewer comes out clean, the bread is ready.

Leave the bread in shape for 5-10 minutes, and then remove and refrigerate completely.


1 Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C. Lightly grease the baking dish. In a large bowl, beat the margarine and sugar. Add the eggs one at a time, whisking well, and then add the banana and vanilla.

2 In a separate bowl, sift together flour, soda, and salt. Add to the finished mixture.

3 Add oatmeal and nuts. Put the dough in the prepared form.

4 Bake in a preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean.
