I have been making so many yummy recipes this winter (we've had a lot of snow and frigid temps)! But, with the kids being home from school for 20 days straight now, that's right, 20 days, I haven't found the time to share these recipes on the blog. I'm going to try to get them all up soon. Here is one of our family's favorite comfort foods...
Banana Walnut Bread
As you have read in the past with my Candied Walnut Recipe we harvest our walnuts from our property. Obviously, you can use store bought. We do NOT grow our own bananas...We live in Missouri!!!
That being said, here is what you will need:
*4 ripe bananas (I like to freeze bananas when they are really ripe, then thaw them when I want to use them)
* 3/4 cup of apple sauce (our's is homemade)
* 1 cup organic unbleached sugar
* 1 egg
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 1 tsp baking soda
* a pinch of salt
*1 1/2 cups of unbleached flour
The first step is to mash the bananas in a bowl. This should be really easy if they are very ripe.
Then stir in 3/4 cup of apple sauce. Our's is brown, because it is home made, but you can use store bought also.
Next, stir in the sugar, egg, vanilla, baking soda, and salt and mix it well. Then add the walnuts.
Add the 1 1/2 cups of flour last and mix well.
When all is mixed pour it into a baking loaf.
And bake at 350 for 1 hour or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
Let it cool before eating and ENJOY!
This is such a delicious winter snack bread. It also goes great with breakfast!
I love to hear comments. How did your bread turn out? What is your favorite homemade bread?
